openSUSE Conference 2020: Call for Hosts

September 25th, 2018 by

The openSUSE Project is pleased to announce that it is accepting proposals for openSUSE Conference 2020. The Call for Hosts will be open until April 15, 2019.

The openSUSE Conference Organizational Team will review the submissions with the hopes of having a decision announced about the location of oSC20 at the openSUSE Conference 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany. Community members and open-source enthusiasts are encouraged to follow the Conference How To guide on the wiki to submit a proposal on hosting the conference. The guide offers a How to Bid and How to Checklist to help with submitting a proposal.

The proposals will need to be submitted to the openSUSE Marketing mailing list and the openSUSE Conference Organizational Team will discuss the proposals as it plans this year’s conference.

While the openSUSE Project intends to move the conference to different worldwide locations in the future, the project has two locations (Nuremberg, Germany, and Prague, Czech Republic) to host the annual community conference if no proposals are submitted during the Call for Hosts.

Dates, Location set for openSUSE Conference 2019

June 25th, 2018 by

The openSUSE Project is pleased to announce the location and dates for the 2019 openSUSE Conference.

The openSUSE Conference 2019 will return to the Z-Bau in Nuremberg, Germany, and be Friday, May 24, through Sunday, May 26.

Planning for the 2019 conference will begin this summer and community members are encouraged to take part in the planning of the conference through the organizing team. The openSUSE Board proposed the idea of having organizing team for openSUSE Conferences last month at oSC18. An email about the organizing team was sent out to the openSUSE-Project mailing list.

Developing the organizing team should help with the planning of future openSUSE Conferences as the project looks expand the conferences to more locations throughout Europe. Both oSC16 and oSC17 were in Nuremberg and oSC18 was in Prague, Czech Republic, last month.

Anyone who is interested in helping to organize oSC19 should email me ddemaio (@) opensuse.org.
