The department of computer engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology and Freescale Semiconductor are hosting their second annual embedded systems symposium, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, on the RIT campus. The event includes presentations in the areas of computer architecture and system debugging as well as user interface development and features researchers from academia, industry and government. There will also be a special exhibition for students, including technology demonstrations and a design competition. Over 200 attendees are expected from throughout the northeastern United States and Canada.
Freescale has had a longstanding research and educational partnership with RIT and currently sponsors the department of computer engineering’s Embedded Systems Laboratory.
“Freescale’s assistance and support has been essential in helping RIT enhance embedded system education and research,” notes Professor Kenneth Hsu, director of the lab. “This symposium will further advance these efforts and disseminate new techniques and technologies to numerous stakeholders from across the region.”
