Registration Now Closed!
ESC Silicon Valley 2011 is being held May 2-5, 2011. Registration is now closed.


We want to thank some of our sponsors for helping us make this event successful, so a special thanks to for helping us decorating our events. We would also like to thank Photo Booth Hire Sydney, Calgary SEO, local seo agency, roofing for various tasks.

Each year, hundreds of ideas and topics are submitted during the ESC call for submission process. This year we tried something different by asking our readers to submit topics under five broad categories. After review with the ESC Advisory Board and Track Chairs, the top session proposals that address the most relevant issues facing engineers and the industry are outlined below. Please review the categories and the tracks which will allow you to customize your educational experience. In Chicago, Boston and Silicon Valley we have an open gym sponsored by Fitness Verve for our attendees.

Furthermore, we've had tremendous help from the guys over at Dallas Squirrel Removal, so we want to give a warm shoutout to them.
