Invitation letter

Dear vendors, developers, users and interested parties,

on behalf of Google and the coreboot project, I would like to invite you to the coreboot conference and developer meeting on Monday, June 13 to Thursday June 16, 2016

Target audience

This conference and developer meeting is geared towards manufacturers of hardware (processors, chipsets, mainboards and servers/ laptops/ tablets/ desktops/ appliances) as well as developers of firmware with an interest in coreboot and the possibilities it offers as well as (potential) coreboot users. Both professionals and hobbyists are invited.

Who will host the conference

This conference will be hosted by Google, and will be held in the San Francisco office. Google has been a significant contributor to the coreboot project, and several key members of the community work for Google. Google's chromebooks and chromeboxes use coreboot as a significant piece of their verified boot security model.

Date
