The Linux Foundation Announces the Embedded Open Source Summit 2024 Schedule

130+ sessions spotlighting recent advancements and the trajectory of embedded technologies provide exclusive access to leaders propelling innovation in embedded and open source domains.

SAN FRANCISCO, February 20, 2024 — The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, last week announced the full schedule for Embedded Open Source Summit (EOSS). The event will take place April 16-18 in Seattle, Washington. The full schedule can be viewed here.

Embedded computing systems play crucial roles across diverse industries, from industrial machinery and automobiles to consumer electronics like digital watches and household appliances. With numerous embedded open source projects under its umbrella, The Linux Foundation is dedicated to fostering environments that drive the advancement of these technologies we increasingly rely on.

Some of the most well-known projects for embedded technology host their community gatherings at EOSS, an event that provides a forum for discussion, collaboration, and education among open source embedded projects and developer communities. This year’s event is composed of four microconferences: Embedded Linux Conference (now in its 19th year), Real-Time Linux Summit, Safety-Critical Software Summit, and Zephyr® Project Developer Summit. EOSS microconferences will include keynote presentations, conference sessions, lightning talks, and birds of a feather (BoF) sessions designed for real time problem solving and deep discussion. 

Embedded Open Source Summit schedule highlights include:

EOSS participants include developers and architects seeking to broaden their understanding of embedded technologies and projects in a vendor-neutral environment. They engage in discussions, collaborate with peers and experts in embedded systems, and gain access to industry-leading expertise.

EOSS is being held alongside Open Source Summit North America, also taking place April 16-18 in Seattle, Washington. To view the full OSSNA schedule, click here. Those who register for EOSS can add on registration for Open Source Summit North America for free.
