We are recommending the same hotel for the Embedded Linux Summit as for LinuxCon Japan. This is the Park Hotel Tokyo which is located in southeast Tokyo, in the Shimbashi district of the city.
If you are attending LinuxCon, you can use the Linux Foundation Room rate, of 15,000 yen (about $175) per night. See instructions on the LinuxCon Japan Hotel page for making a reservation.

The agenda is being discussed on the summit mailing list.
Here is the draft that Tim proposed for different topics for the meeting:
1. mainline gap 1.1 version gap is most prevalent form 1.2 how to reduce it? 1.2.1 can stable release maintenance help with this? 1.2.2 patch mining - pros and cons 1.2.3 proxy contributors - pros and cons 1.2.4 development methods: git vs. git+quilt vs. big honking vendor tarballs! 2. architecture-specific issues (ARM, MIPS, x86) 2.1 SOC vendor tree isolation 2.2 defconfigs 2.3 recent industry initiatives (e.g. Linaro) 3. SMP in embedded 4. Android current status 4.1 kernel requirements 4.2 mainline gap 4.2.1 how it's managed 4.2.2 plan for closing gap 5. Meego current status (same sub-points as above) (Dirk or Arjan?) 6. WebOS current status (same sub-points as above) (Bdale?) 7. The state of flash file systems 8. embedded power management 8.1 suspend blockers? 8.2 runtime PM 9. industry contribution rate - how to increase it 9.1 impedances to industry participation in open source 9.1.1 systematically identifying impedances 10. industry and community pain points 10.1 industry pain points - what do developers spend their time doing? 10.2 community pain points - what to developers spend their time doing? 10.3 need a survey or are attendees representative? 11.

Mini summit followup meeting in the UK
Russell King won't be coming to the meeting in Tokyo. Since a number of us will be in England at ELC Europe in late October, we've decided to have a brief meeting there as well, to include Russell and continue discussing some of the ideas raised in Tokyo.
