The Linux Foundation announced the schedule for LinuxCon + CloudOpen + Embedded Linux Conference Europe, to be held Oct. 13-15 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Since the Linux Foundation posted the initial list of keynotes for the LinuxCon + CloudOpen + ELC (Embedded Linux Conference) Europe in early July, the Linux advocacy organization has announced two more. Paul Biondich, president of the OpenMRS open source medical records initiative, is speaking on “How Open Source Communities are Improving the Health of the Poor.” In addition, Chris Schlaeger, Managing Director of the Amazon Development Center will discuss the “Building Blocks of AWS.” Previously announced speakers include Linux creator Linus Torvalds, Jono Bacon (XPRIZE), Joanna Rutkowska (Invisible Things Lab), and Frank Karlitschek, founder of the ownCloud project, among others.

In addition to folding in CloudOpen and ELC, LinuxCon Europe will be co-located with the following technical events: Community Management Workshop, GStreamer Conference, KVM Forum, Linux Tracing Summit, Linux Plumbers Conference, Real-Time Linux Workshop, U-Boot Mini Summit, and the Yocto Project Dev Day. In addition, a Women in Open Source Luncheon will take place Monday, Oct. 13, and the LF will offer some “scholarship” passes to women who could otherwise not attend LinuxCon. A Newcomers Reception will be held the same day.

The following is a sampling of some of the more interesting Embedded Linux Conference sessions, although there are many more that should be intriguing as well. Additional topics covered include performance analysis, Wayland, U-Boot, Skia, DRM/KMS, U-root, Generic PHY framework, device driver debugging, LTSI, hypervisors, fast boot, power measurement, and Buildroot, among others. There are also BoF sessions on Coreboot and the Yocto Project.
