Want to present at ESC Minneapolis 2015? Well, the clock is ticking!

Well, things are getting pretty exciting around here in the Pleasure Dome (my office), let me tell you.

ESC Boston is racing towards us in May; ESC Silicon Valley will follow soon behind in July; and then — to close out the year — we have ESC Minneapolis in November.

The reason I'm waffling on about all of this is that we just opened the ESC Minneapolis Portal for you to submit your presentation proposals.

As you'll see in this video, ESC Minneapolis is especially interesting to me because I've been tasked with coordinating the technical part of the program.

Now, I've presented at many ESCs over the years, and I've even been a track chair on occasion, but this will be the first time I've orchestrated the entire technical program (my dear old mom will be so proud). As I mentioned in an earlier column:

I want this ESC to be the one that sets the standard for years to come. On the occasion of my 100th birthday (see May 29, 2057 — Mark the Date!) — which I may well celebrate at ESC 2057 — I want to hear grizzled old engineers say things like “Ah, ESC Minneapolis 2015, I was there,” and for a hushed silence to fall, and for all the younger engineers to gather round and beg to hear tall tales of that legendary occasion.

So what I'm looking for is talks that will first blow my mind and then blow my socks off (or vice versa). I want presentations that introduce interesting and novel design and verification tools and techniques. I want talks about real-world design and verification problems and solutions. I want sessions so enticing that it's “standing room only” and so exciting that they leave me and the audience quivering with delight and gasping for more.

Phew! This is making me excited just thinking about it. So, what do you think? Do you have a topic to share related to Embedded Software Design or Embedded Hardware Design or the Internet of Things ? Or maybe you've created a one-of-a-kind electronic invention or there's some weird and wacky gadget or gizmo you’ve dreamed up, coded, wired, soldered, hammered, and glued together, in which case the Fantastical Theatre of Engineering Innovation track is the one for you. If any of this gets your creative juices flowing, then now's the time to bounce over to the ESC Minneapolis Portal and submit your abstract — don’t delay, do it today!
