LinuxWorld Conference & Expo is scheduled to take place August 4-7, 2008 at the Moscone Center.

“The timing of this conference is perfect because it compliments the success of the mobile Linux focus that LinuxWorld® 2007 featured. This conference expands on that successful content, the audience, and the sponsor participation,” said Bill Weinberg, Conference Chair and independent analyst and consultant, Linuxpundit.com. “Linux has quietly been making inroads in embedded and mobile marketplace for some time now, and it has the potential to achieve end-to-end acceptance with a unified code base and development paradigm.”

The Mobile Linux Conference will intricately explore how Linux-based platforms really work, offering developers insight into the technical capabilities of mobile Linux, avenues for creating and customizing mobile system software, and building applications on Linux-based mobile phones and “stacks.” The conference tracks, Mobile Linux Platforms and Building Applications on Mobile Linux, will detail technical and marketplace challenges facing Linux deployment in mobile at each stage of the ecosystem - from chipmakers to OSVs, to handset OEMs to operators and ISVs. Key themes will include interoperability, application development frameworks, and innovations in platform.

In addition to strong interest in having content dedicated to mobile Linux at LinuxWorld, the vendor community support for this conference is equally as strong with companies including ACCESS, Motorola, Nokia, Trolltech, and Wind River participating.

“Linux is poised to become the operating system of choice for mobile and beyond-PC devices,” said Toru Arakawa, CEO, president and co-founder of ACCESS. “With the release of innovative Linux-based handsets and devices we look for 2008 to be a pivotal year for developers of mobile Linux applications. Conferences like LinuxWorld and now the Mobile Linux Conference will be key in helping developers take advantage of these opportunities.”
