Deadlines… we like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by! Originally the Call for Papers (CfP) for the openSUSE Conference 2013 (oSC13), the annual gathering of our community, ended at April 3. You have submitted a lot of great talks and workshops and we’ve started to build a preliminary schedule that looks awesome possum, pardon our french.
However some of you seem to have missed the deadline and there are still a handful of slots left to be filled so we are extending the CfP until Monday, June 17, 12pm. But, there had to be a but, we expect that the schedule will fill quickly, so get your merde together, there is that french again, and submit your proposals as soon as possible!
What we are looking for
Your submission should either be a talk, a presentation with slides, or a workshop where you instruct people in a hands-on lab experience. The focus of your submission should be one of the following 3 topics:
Community & Project
Submissions in this area should focus on the openSUSE project and community activities, including but not limited to project governance, marketing, artwork, ambassador reports and so on.
Submissions in this area should focus on openSUSE technologies such as packaging, the distribution, the openSUSE infrastructure etc.
For this area we invite other FOSS projects to share their work and collaborate with the openSUSE community. Submissions are not limited to technical content, you may choose to talk about your favorite pet project such as building a boat, a robot, or other interesting topics.
