About the Embedded Linux Expo & Conference (ELEC)

The Embedded Linux Expo & Conference (ELEC) is the world's first expo and conference to exclusively target the use of the popular open-source Linux operating system in embedded applications. Each ELEC event features a full day of technical presentations by CEOs, CTOs, and other senior technical experts of leading embedded Linux companies, on issues and challenges associated with integrating Linux and Linux-related technologies into embedded system applications. In addition to the technical presentations, several dozen suppliers of technologies and products useful to developers of Linux-based embedded systems will participate in the Expo portion of the event, providing product demonstrations and answering attendees' technical questions.

ELEC is directed towards engineers, project managers, and design teams that are developing a broad range of embedded systems incorporating the Linux operating system and related technologies. Typical applications span the gamut from moderate to high performance fixed and mobile computing needs, and include: smart appliances, gaming, set-top boxes, medical equipment, defense/aerospace systems, industrial control/automation, transportation systems, instrumentation, and data acquisition.
