Supercon 2018 will take place November 2nd, 3rd, and 4th (2018) in Pasadena, CA at the Supplyframe DesignLab and the Los Angeles College of Music (LACM).
That's right, we've added an extra day!
We are excited to read your proposals and to have you join us! Please get your proposal(s) in by Monday, September 3rd 5p Pacific time.
Talks and workshops will cover hardware, engineering, creativity in technical design, product design, prototyping, etc. We are especially interested in originality! Please no sales pitches or talks on subjects we've already heard about.
We will be focusing on hands-on workshops utilizing the range of tools that exist in the DesignLab. We also have two main conference tracks where speakers can speak for 10-30 minutes about their projects and ideas.
We like topics that revolve around real world hardware; lessons learned from things you built, or techniques you can teach to others (based upon the things you built). The overarching theme of all talks/workshops should be about HARDWARE CREATION.
Here are some example topics/ links to video from last year:
1. Michael Ossmann & Dominic Spill: Aye, ARRR! pIRates! (https://youtu.be/J2ggQaVpKAw)2. Anouk Wipprecht: Robotic Dresses and Intuitive Interfaces (https://youtu.be/odxF7lqQuEA)3. ANDiXOR: Applied Engineering for more than just fun and bling (https://youtu.be/HbgALnFNwGg)4. Syd Mead: The Future is Now (https://youtu.be/RgWhuFeYkb4)5. Dr. Christal Gordon: Sensor Fusion (https://youtu.be/VCTyxR3VgCY)
We'll be letting you know if your proposal was accepted shortly thereafter. Travel stipends are need based and will be determined by your distance to the conference location.
Accepted talks will receive a free ticket. If you propose a talk/ workshop that was not accepted, you will receive a ticket at half price.
