Reminder: openSUSE Conference Call for Participation Deadline June 5

June 1st, 2009 by

The deadline for the openSUSE Conference call for participation is coming up pretty rapidly — Friday, June 5th is the last day to submit a proposal. We’re looking for contributors to openSUSE, upstream projects, and members of the openSUSE community to participate.

The summit will be an opportunity to bring the openSUSE contributor community together to share ideas, experience, hack, and help guide the direction of the project. So we’re looking to members of the community to give presentations, tutorials, and lead birds of a feather and panel sessions in several tracks:

  • Community: Marketing, translations, wiki, documentation, forums, and openSUSE governance.
  • Desktop: Topics related to the openSUSE desktop, including KDE, GNOME, Xfce, and applications.
  • Server: Use of openSUSE on the server or development of server applications.
  • Toolchain and System: The kernel, YaST, packaging, and openSUSE Build Service.
  • Open Day: Saturday will include a track for openSUSE users and people new to Linux.

If you’re interested in presenting at the openSUSE Summit, fill out the Call for Participation Form with all of the details for your participation. We’re accepting talks, tutorials, birds of a feather, and panel discussion submissions. (Birds of feather sessions will be scheduled after hours.)

The summit will not be entirely composed of prepared presentations, so we will be accepting a limited number of proposals. Make ‘em count!
