LinuxCon Puts Out Call for Papers Ahead of Summer Event

by Ostatic Staff - Feb. 08, 2010

LinuxCon 2010 is just six months away, and the Linux Foundation is on the lookout for attendees and presenters alike. A Call for Participation went out last week, inviting Linux users of all types to submit presentation proposals.

Program options include individual and panel presentations, workgroups, lightning sessions, tutorials, and "birds of a feather" sessions, grouped into three tracks. The Operations track will target architecture, deployment, migration, and other areas of system administration/management, while the Developer track focuses on software engineering, core development, the kernel, and other development. Enterprise, governance, and the open source ecosystem will comprise the Business category.

The CFP page has topic suggestions for those short on ideas, guidelines for proposal writers, and submission requirements. The deadline for entries is midnight on March 31 (Pacific). Acceptance and rejection notices will go out by April 15.

The main conference will take place August 10 - 12 in Boston, Massachusetts, with mini-summits scheduled for August 9. Early registration is open until April 15 for $300, and will go up to $400 from then through August 9.

Students can register at any time for $100, and will have to show their student ID at check-in. Travel and accommodation arrangements can be made through the conference hotel, the Renaissance Boston Waterfront.
