Submit a talk
We encourage anybody involved in the open source semiconductor engineering space to come along and share your work or experience. Presentations slots as short as 3 minute lightning-talks and up to 30 minute talks including Q and A are available.
So if you’ve designed, worked on or even just used open source IP cores and/or management systems, verification IP, build flows, SoCs, simulators, synthesis tools, FPGA and ASIC implementation tools, languages and DSLs, compilers, or anything related we’d love to have you join us to share your experience.
Presentations are submitted through the registration process and we will let you know if your presentation was accepted.
Attendance of Latch-Up is free. To help us organizing the event, you are required to register using the button below or via the EventBrite link.
Attendees who are joining us at Latch-Up on behalf of their company and/or can claim the conference as professional training expense are encouraged to purchase a professional ticket. These ticket sales help us provide all that we do at Latch-Up and keep the event accessible to all members of the community. Professional ticket holders are able to get their company name printed on their name badge and receive a special treat. You can buy professional tickets using the button below or via the EventBrite link.
We ask all Latch-Up participants to adhere to the the FOSSi Foundation code of conduct throughout the event.
Sponsorship and Volunteering at Latch-Up
Latch-Up is free to attend, but we aim to provide catering and the like during the event. Latch-Up is also a great way to get your company or brand in front of lots of engineers and hackers on the day, and thousands more through recordings of the event. So please get in touch if you’d like to explore sponsorship opportunities.
Latch-Up is organized by volunteers on behalf of the FOSSi Foundation. We are currently looking for more people to help out with arrangements and putting on the event, so please do email us if you would like to volunteer for during the event with setup, AV, or even just local knowledge so we can plan the weekend better.
