Time is running out to speak at ESC
As always, the sands of time are trickling through the hourglass. “Time flies like an arrow and fruit flies like bananas,” as they say (when artificial intelligence systems understand and laugh at this pun, that’s when we’ll know we have problems).
Have you ever thought about presenting a paper (preferably on a topic you know something about) at ESC? In addition to the gratification that comes from sharing your knowledge, and the adulation of the audience, being able to add “ESC Presenter” to your resume always looks good. Furthermore, if you submit a paper and it’s accepted, then you automatically get a full conference pass, which means you get to listen to any of the other talks, plus you can rub shoulders with your peers in the speaker’s lounge (I’m often to be found there having an after-breakfast or pre-lunch snooze — try not to wake me 🙂
If speaking at ESC is on your bucket list, then now is the time to submit your presentation proposals for ESC Minneapolis (November 8-9) and ESC Silicon Valley(December 6-7). Sad to relate, time is no longer on your side. I just heard that the ESC Minneapolis Submissions Portal and the ESC Silicon Valley Submissions Portal will be closing their doors this coming Friday, June 9.
Of course, even if you decide not to talk yourself, it would be great to see you out there. As always, I’ll be the one in the Hawaiian shirt. And, as always, if you see me meandering around, all you need to do is shout “Max, Bacon!” or “Max, Beer!” to be assured of my undivided attention.

Over the years, Max has designed everything from silicon chips to circuit boards, and from brainwave amplifiers to steampunk “Display-O-Meters.” He has also been at the forefront of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) for more than 30 years. Well-known throughout the embedded, electronics, semiconductor, and EDA industries, Max has presented papers at numerous technical conferences around the world, including North and South America, Europe, India, China, Korea, and Taiwan. Max has given keynote presentations at the PCB West conference in the USA, the FPGA Forum in Norway, and the Embedded Everywhere conference in Denmark. He’s also been invited to give guest lectures at several universities in the USA, Oslo University in Norway, and Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. In 2001, Max “shared the stage” at a conference in Hawaii with former Speaker of the House, “Newt” Gingrich. Max is the author and/or co-author of a number of books, including Designus Maximus Unleashed (banned in Alabama), Bebop to the Boolean Boogie (An Unconventional Guide to Electronics), EDA: Where Electronics Begins, FPGAs: Instant Access, and How Computers Do Math.
