Date   
Final ELC 2018 CFP reminder - Jan 9 deadline

Tim Bird
 

Hello everyone,

This is a post-holidays reminder (the final one) about the deadline for
submitting proposals for ELC 2018. Due to the Christmas and New Year's
holidays, and because the original CFP close date was on a Sunday, we
have extended the original deadline by 2 days, to:

Tuesday, January 9th, at 11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time.

Note that this change was just made, so you might not see the CFP page
updated with the new deadline just yet.

The conference will be held on March 12-14 in Portland, Oregon, in the U.S.

For general information about the conference, See
https://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/elc-openiot-north-america-2018/

For information about the call for participation, see
https://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/elc-openiot-north-america-2018/program/cfp/

I am very much looking forward to seeing your proposals, and seeing you at the event.

Thanks,
-- Tim Bird

ELC 2018 Technical Showcase - Call for Demonstrations

Tim Bird
 

Greetings, person interested in the Embedded Linux Conference...

As in past years, the ELC staff is organizing a technical showcase
for conference participants:

See http://elinux.org/ELC_2018_Technical_Showcase

The technical showcase is an opportunity:

* For Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) projects to show their
software in action, to grow their user and developer community

* For system developers to share their experience using FOSS
components (knowledge sharing with other system developers will need
to be the primary focus)

* For hardware makers to show the capabilities of their hardware,
provided what is demonstrated is mostly based on FOSS.

* For ELC 2018 speakers to give a hands-on experience related to what
they presented, and have plenty of time to interact with people who
were interested in their presentation.

The technical showcase is set to happen on Tuesday evening (March 13),
the middle day of Embedded Linux Conference (North America) 2018.
See https://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/elc-openiot-north-america-2018/
for conference details.

If you are interested in showcasing something, please contact the
showcase coordinator - Yoshitake Kobayashi - by February 2, and prepare
a poster too (poster due by February 9). However, please send
your message sooner rather than later, as demonstration space will
be limited.

The coordinators spam-resistant e-mail is:
kobayashi (dot) yoshitake (at) toshiba (dot) co (dot) jp

Thanks - We look forward to seeing you there.

Well, I made a pretty big mistake in my showcase e-mail.

Kobayashi-san's correct email is:
yoshitake (dot) kobayashi (at) toshiba (dot) co (dot) jp

Sorry about that. Please use this e-mail to apply for a slot
at the ELC Technical Showcase.

Hi Tim

Sorry for the late reply but I wanted to have a working PCB before
committing to the Technical Showcase.

This year I want to demonstrate a particle scanner working in an X86
and ARM, both using an image built with Yocto Project.
Since the ECLE is in Edinburgh, the plan is to add 1 micrometer
plastic particles into whisky and detect it using both platforms, X86
and ARM64.

If you still have some space I would love to demo our work.


Thanks!

Recent issues with ELC videos

Tim Bird
 

Hello ELC speakers, attendees and interested parties,

Here is an update on some issues with video recordings from recent and not-so-recent
Embedded Linux Conference events.

Sometime over the summer, someone at the LF deleted a YouTube channel that had 3 events
worth of videos. The events, were ELC 2015, ELC Europe 2015, and ELC 2016. Members of
the Linux Foundation IT department and event staff are working now to try to restore
as many videos as possible from backups. They have contacted Google/YouTube to try to
restore the channel that was deleted, but so far have gotten no response. They have also
contacted the original video-recording companies, and found backups for some videos.
Those that they've found so far should be reloaded to Youtube within a few weeks.

For ELC 2019, LF announced that the videos would be free to attendees, but offered to
non-attendees for a fee. The videos were placed on Vimeo.
The paywall thing was an experiment, and after receiving negative feedback from the
Linux community the LF decided to revert to previous policy.
The videos will make their way to YouTube, and will be freely accessible there.
Videos will also stay on Vimeo, with free access to both attendees and non-attendees.
However, they will also have a "pay" button (which apparently
cannot be removed once they videos are entered into a "for pay" Vimeo catalog).

We will probably have to go back and re-enter new video links for the affected
years, once the dust settles and the videos are (re-)posted on YouTube again.
We will also make an announcement when the new or re-posted videos are
available.

I hope this clarifies the status of the videos, and resolves concerns that people
have had about the ELC videos. We continue to be committed to making as
much information as possible from ELC available to the community-at-large
for free.

Regards,
-- Tim

ELC 2016 Videos restored!!

Tim Bird
 

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know that the videos for ELC 2006 have been re-uploaded to
the Linux Foundation YouTube channel.

They are available on this playlist:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbzoR-pLrL6rgjonaAUcud04lafpQGokR

We will be working to update the elinux page for the event, to link the individual
talks to their videos.

I want to express my appreciation for the Linux Foundation employees and contractors
who have worked to restore these, after the mishap over the summer.

Regards,
-- Tim

Re: ELC 2016 Videos restored!!

Alex J Lennon
 

Magnificent. Thanks for and congrats all for pulling it out of the fire.

I’m working on #MakeSpaceLive to stream and archive content that otherwise would be unknown/lost and your post on this Tim really made me think about how we should be approaching archival.

Cheers,

I guess you meant ELC 2016 here, like in the e-mail subject, and not ELC
2006.

the Linux Foundation YouTube channel.
Excellent!
Indeed.

However, if I remember correctly, it was not just one ELC that was
missing, but at least two (or perhaps one ELC, one ELCE). Do you know
if both have been recovered ?
The other one was ELCE 2014, in Düsseldorf, cfr. the missing video links
on https://elinux.org/ELC_Europe_2014_Presentations.
Yeah. Those videos were unfortunately lost immediately after the event
and were never published. (The video recording company lost the hard
drive they were on). I'm afraid we'll never see those.

The ones that went missing with the LF YouTube channel problem were:
ELC 2015, ELC Europe 2015 and ELC 2016.

ELC 2016 videos have now been restored. I'll check on the status of the others.
IIRC, I think we may have found backups for the US ELCs but not for ELC Europe 2015.

ELCE 2019 videos now available

Tim Bird
 

Esteemed embedded Linux colleagues,

The videos from Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2019 are now available on YouTube.
This includes keynotes, ELCE sessions and OpenIOT sessions.

Here is a link to playlist
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbzoR-pLrL6pamOj4UifcMJf560Ph6mJp

We will be adding links to the presentations page shortly.
See https://elinux.org/ELC_Europe_2019_Presentations

Note, if the YouTube video title doesn't contain a speaker's company or title it's because of a 100 character
limit on YouTube. The full information will be in the video description.

Thanks,
-- Tim

Many thanks to you and to the Linux Foundation for making sure that all
ELC and ELCE sessions are recorded on video, and are published very quickly.

I'm sure I'm not the only one to be grateful :)

Thanks again,

Michael.
