LPC 2019 Call for Microconferences and Refereed-Track Proposals
Submissions close: May 22, 2019
Speakers notified: June 24, 2019
Slides due: August 31, 2019
We are pleased to announce the Call for Refereed-Track Proposals for the 2019 edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which will held be in Lisboa, Portugal on September 9th to 11th in conjunction with the Linux Kernel Maintainer Summit (September 12th and invitation only).
Refereed track presentations are 45 minutes in length (which includes time for questions and discussion) and should focus on a specific aspect of the "plumbing" in the Linux system. Examples of Linux plumbing include core kernel subsystems, core libraries, windowing systems, management tools, device support, container run-times, media creation/playback, and so on. The best presentations are not about finished work, but rather problems, proposals, or proof-of-concept solutions that require face-to-face discussions and debate.
Given that Linux Plumbers Conference is not co-located with the Open Source Summit again this year, we are spreading the refereed-track talks over all three days. This provides a change of pace and also provides a conflict-free schedule for the refereed-track talks. (Yes, this does result in more conflicts between the refereed-track talks and the Microconferences, but we never claimed that the world was perfect.)
Linux Plumbers Conference Program Committee members will be reviewing all submitted sessions. High-quality submission that cannot be accepted due to the limited number of slots will be forwarded to the Microconference leads for further consideration. We also encourage submitters to consider BoF sessions and the unconference.
We are pleased to announce the Call for Microconferences for the 2019 edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which will be held in Lisboa, Portugal on September 9-11 in conjunction with the Linux Kernel Maintainer Summit (September 12th and invitation only).
A microconference is a collection of collaborative sessions focused on problems in a particular area of the Linux plumbing, which includes the kernel, libraries, utilities, UI, and so forth, but can also focus on cross-cutting concerns such as security, scaling, energy efficiency, or a particular use case. Good microconferences result in solutions to these problems and concerns, while the best microconferences result in patches that implement those solutions.
