Attracting 500+ attendees, Linaro Connect is a bi-annual event which brings together engineers and industry experts to discuss, learn, network and push forward new technologies for five days in some of the most interesting cities around the world. For the past five years, Linaro Connect has been the event to attend if you are interested in Linux development and related ecosystems on ARM. While the event continues to evolve, one thing stays the same – it is all about Engineering. We will host the next Linaro Connect in Budapest at the Corinthia Hotel from Monday 6th to Friday 10th March 2017.

George Grey

CEO, Linaro

George, Chief Executive Officer,  joined Linaro in 2010 bringing a wealth of industry knowledge. Prior to joining Linaro George led software and hardware technology companies for over 25 years, gaining wide ranging expertise in business strategy, product development, sales and marketing. Early in his career he spent 12 years as founder and then CEO of Tadpole Technology plc, a developer of advanced mobile workstations. More recently at SavaJe, a pioneer of Smartphone operating systems, he developed a deep understanding of advanced software technologies, and worked with partners and customers across the entire mobile industry. George has built a reputation for leading and growing technology companies, and brings to Linaro extensive experience in creating innovative products and solutions for global markets. George holds a degree in Electrical Sciences from Cambridge University and resides in Boston, Massachusetts.

Björn Ekelund

Head of Hardware and Device Technology at Ericsson Research

Title: Human communication, a niche use case in 5G
Date: Wednesday, March 8

Jonathan Corbet

Kernel documentation maintainer, Co-founder of LWN.net

Title: The kernel’s limits to growth
Date: Friday, March 10
Time: 8.30 – 9.15

David Abdurachmanov

Software Engineer at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (US)

Title: High Energy Physics and ARMv8 64-bit? Investigating The Future of Computing at CERN
Date: Wednesday, March 8
Time: 9.10 – 9.50
Around the year 2000, the convergence on Linux and commodity x86_64 processors provided a homogeneous scientific computing platform which enabled the construction of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) for LHC data processing. This allowed the High Energy Physics (HEP) community to use a homogeneous software model utilizing the x86_64 architecture. LHC experiments at CERN, in particular ATLAS and CMS, started investigating ARMv8 64-bit (AArch64) architecture for HEP needs. A journey which started in 2013. The LHC community faces a great challenge regarding computing needs in 10 years and has started exploring public clouds, volunteer computing (e.g., [email protected]) and HPC facilities to increase peak computation capacity. This talk will contain information about future (a timeline of 10 years) computation needs for LHC experiments and the more recent progress done by ATLAS, CernVM and CMS teams on using ARMv8 64-bit/AArch64.
