The Free and Open Source Silicon Foundation has announced that ORConf 2018 will be held over the weekend of September 21st to 23rd in Gdansk, Poland. Now in its seventh year, ORConf is a free to attend conference for open source digital, semiconductor and embedded systems design engineers. What started as the annual OpenRISC developer conference has grown to become a broad open source digital design-oriented event, featuring talks on topics including RISC-V, OpenPiton, FPGA toolchains, EDA tools, and ASICs for makers, to name but a few.

Talk proposals are invited, there is an announce mailing list to keep informed, and those interested in finding out about sponsorship opportunities should contact the FOSSi Foundation.
