We are pleased to announce the Call for Refereed-Track Proposals for the 2016 edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which will held be in Santa Fe, NM, USA on November 2-4 in conjunction with Linux Kernel Summit.
Refereed track presentations are 50 minutes in length 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, 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 Plumbers is not colocated with LinuxCon 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 referred-track talks and the Microconferences, but there never is a truly free lunch.)
Linux Plumbers Conference Program Committee members will be reviewing all submitted sessions. High-quality submisssion that cannot be accepted due to the limited number of slots will be forwarded to the Microconference leads for further consideration.
To submit a refereed track talk proposal follow the instructions at this website.
Submissions are due on or before Thursday 1 September, 2016 at 11:59PM Pacific Time. Since this is after the closure of early registration, speakers may register before this date and we’ll refund the registration for any selected presentation’s speaker, but for only one speaker per presentation.
Finally, we are still accepting Microconference submissions here.
Submissions close: September 1, 2016
Speakers notified: September 22, 2016
Slides due: November 1, 2016
