The LPC 2014 Planning Committee and the Microconference Leaders are pleased to announce that it is now possible to submit discussion topics for individual microconferences. In addition, attendees can also propose ideas for BOF (“Birds of a Feather”) discussion sessions.
Before you submit a topic for discussion within a microconference, make sure you look at the list of accepted microconferences for this year, in the LPC 2014 microconferences page, to determine which microconference is more appropriate for your proposal and who its leader is. Microconference leads have an important role as they are responsible for accepting and scheduling discussion topics within a microconference. Please carefully read the instructions on how to submit and manage microconference discussion topic proposals here: How to Submit Microconferences Discussions Topics.
A BoF is an informal gathering held to discuss a particular topic. Generally, these are used for special interest discussions, topics that aren’t large enough to warrant a full microconference, or to solicit specific input on technical problems. Any LPC attendee may propose a BoF session by following the instructions available on this page: How to Submit a BOF Proposal. BoFs will be scheduled by the LPC Planning Team as the conference draws closer.
If you have questions, please email the planning team.
