|Genre||Free software and free hardware development conference|
|Location(s)||Paris, Sorbonne Université|
The 2023 Free Silicon Conference (FSiC) will take place in Paris (Sorbonne) on July 10,11,12 2023 (Monday to Wednesday). This event will build on top of the past FSiC2019 and FSiC2022 editions. The conference will connect experts and enthusiasts who want to build a complete Free and Open Source CAD ecosystem for designing analog and digital integrated circuits. The conference will cover the full spectrum of the design process, from system architecture, to layout and verification. After the daily talks, the discussion will continue until late in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.
February 16: submissions are open.
Objectives and motto
The goal of FSiC is to make the technology accessible to small businesses, startups, universities and schools. Students, makers and professional should have direct access to education, without barriers, paywalls and legal burdens. What's the value of multi-billion public investments if there aren't designers, engineers and other experts who can operate the industry and who master the tools to innovate? We all took apart watches and radios when we were kids, hence we learned how they work. It is time to look inside chips and their tool-chains so that we can study, improve, repair and trust them.
The conference motto is therefore: Education, sustainability and innovation by openness and collaboration!
