2017 Embedded Vision Summit Call for Papers

----------------------------

2017 Embedded Vision Summit 

The Embedded Vision Summit is an annual conference, attracting a
unique audience of hundreds of product creators, entrepreneurs and
business decision-makers who are using embedded vision
technology. Next year's Summit will take place May 1-3, 2017 in
Santa Clara, California.

We are assembling the presentation program and have a limited number
of presentation opportunities.  If you are interested in presenting at
the Summit, please read on.  To maximize the likelihood of acceptance,
please send your proposal by December 19, 2016.

The Embedded Vision Summit has experienced exciting growth over the
last few years, and we're working hard to make the 2017 Summit our
best event yet.  This email outlines the requirements for Summit
presentations.  We've found that adhering to these guidelines
enables a superior experience for attendees.  A satisfied audience
enables us to grow the Summit and increase the event's impact for
Alliance Member companies.  (98% of 2016 Summit attendees reported
that they'd recommend the event to a colleague.)

The Summit program will incorporate three presentation tracks:

    Technical Insights.  These presentations will focus on practical
    technical education.  Experienced engineers will present
    techniques, trade-offs and case studies useful to vision product
    developers.  Presentations in this track are non-promotional.
     
    Enabling Technologies.  These presentation opportunities provide a
    way for Alliance Member companies to highlight their products.
    Presented in a dedicated theater in the Technology Showcase area,
    Member company demos will be close at hand.  (Member companies
    sponsoring at the Premier Plus, Premier and Gold levels have
    Enabling Technologies presentation slots reserved for them.  Other
    Member companies may reserve Enabling Technologies presentation
    slots for a fee).
     
    Business Insights.  Presentations in this track should focus on
    providing insights useful to business decision makers, including
    market and technology trends, business models, and case studies
    illustrating how vision technology is delivering value to
    consumers, businesses and other organizations.  Presentations in
    this track are non-promotional.


The Embedded Vision Summit has become a highly regarded industry event
largely on the strength of its presentation program.  To maintain the
excellent quality of the program, the Alliance requires that all
Summit presentations and speakers meet the following criteria:


    Technical Insights and Business Insights talks should be
    substantive, insightful and educational  not promotional.

    Talks should present practical insights, data and techniques that
    attendees can put to use.

    The best Summit talks focus on:

        Embedded vision applications, such as: automotive, robotics,
        drones, security, entertainment, retail, consumer, industrial,
        etc.

        Embedded vision design and development techniques: algorithms,
        low-power design, trade-off studies, etc.

        Embedded vision business opportunities: market data, trends,
        business models, deployment case studies, etc.

    Talks should be presented by speakers who have strong public
    speaking skills and subject matter expertise.  For the Technical
    Insights track, talks should be presented by individuals in
    engineering or engineering management roles.

    We encourage joint presentations with customers and partners.

    All talks will take place on May 1st or 2nd, 2017, in Santa Clara,
    California.

    Each talk will be 20-25 minutes in length, with 5-10 minutes for
    audience Q&A.

     All talks must use the Embedded Vision Summit PowerPoint
     template, which will be distributed in January.  The template
     includes a place for your company logo.
