CMP Media's Embedded Systems Conference Boston Co-Locates With the Embedded Security Seminar

Embedded Systems Conference Boston Dedicated To Processor-based Technology and Development, Embedded Security Seminar Addresses Design For Safeguarding Information

Jul 19, 2004

CMP Media today announced the technical program for the 13th annual Embedded Systems Conference Boston (, held September 13-16, 2004, at the Hynes Convention Center. More than 3,000 design engineers and managers are expected to attend for the rich technical design classes and important business discussions about developing intelligent systems that incorporate processor- based technology. Among the 120 leading hardware and software providers that will showcase innovative, breakthrough technology and products are Green Hills Software, Mentor Graphics, Motorola, and Xilinx.

As security concerns becoming increasingly pervasive and unavoidable especially in the information technology and design engineering realm, CMP Media is simultaneously offering the Embedded Security Seminar, September 13- 15 at the Hynes Convention Center., the first in a fall series of three design seminars. The co-located Embedded Security Seminar is a three-day technical program that will focus on encryption, standards firewalls, protecting IP and security for wireless, and Internet protocol. The headline sponsors for the seminar are LynuxWorks and Atmel.

"Embedded design is one of the most dynamic spaces in the high-tech industry today," said Lindsey Vereen, conference director. "As networked embedded applications continue to increase, new challenges are emerging focused on critical issues such as security. With the addition of the Embedded Security Seminar, we'll not only cover the materials, technique, and design of embedded systems, but also the mechanics of engineering secure networked systems."

The program will feature a dynamic keynote speaker, 78 classes and tutorials, two panel discussions on the trend toward switch fabrics and design efficiency, and three shop talk sessions.

Event Keynote

On Tuesday, September 14, 10:15 a.m.-11:30 a.m., Dan Saks, writer for Embedded Systems Programming and C++ Guru who served for many years on the International C++ standard committee, will address "Keeping Your Job Onshore," how software developers can make themselves more valuable in the marketplace amid the trend toward off-shoring.
