Supercon 2017 will take place November 11th and 12th (2017) in Pasadena, CA. Talks and workshops will cover similar areas as last year (hardware, engineering, creativity in technical design, product design, prototyping, etc). We will return to The Supplyframe DesignLab and the LACM as a conference venue, with other possible local add-on locations.
We will be focusing on hands-on workshops, this time utilizing the range of tools that exist in the design lab. We also still have a main conference track 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 from last year:
1. Ken Shirriff - How to reverse engineer integrated circuit (http://buff.ly/2qRyXJj)2. Sarah Petkus - TastingFeet: Behavioral Quirks to Mechanical Systems (http://buff.ly/2ruDa8K)3. Alan Yates - Lighthouse; the Steam VR Tracking System (http://buff.ly/2qRDYBT)4. Kari Love - Soft Robotics for Space Exploration (http://buff.ly/2qRlL7x)5. Lucy Du - Hacking your way through NASA (http://buff.ly/2qZw60b)
We are excited to read your proposals and to have you join us! Please get your proposal(s) in by August 14th.
We'll be letting you know if yours was accepted shortly thereafter. Travel stipends are needs based and will be determined by your distance to the conference location.
