From 2017 - Kernel Miniconf CFP


- LCA Kernel Miniconf, Hobart, Australia, {16,17} Jan 2017

- Submissions by 23:59, 21 November (Anywhere on Earth)

- Wanted: anything interesting to kernel hackers! Speakers from
diverse backgrounds encouraged!

- Read below for the details!


Less TL;DR version:[0], the World's Greatest Free Software Conference(tm), is
back in Hobart, Tasmania for 2017!

I'm very pleased to announce that the Kernel Miniconf[1] is also
returning, and that our CFP is now open!

What is the Kernel Miniconf?

LCA's miniconfs are one-day special interest streams that allow in depth
discussion of particular topics.

The Kernel Miniconf will focus on a variety of kernel-related topics -
technical presentations on up-and-coming kernel developments, the future
direction of the kernel (in keeping with this year’s LCA theme!), and
kernel development community and process matters. Basically, anything of
interest to kernel hackers. Past Kernel Miniconfs have included talks on
RCU, scheduling, filesystems, memory management, and so on.

As with previous Kernel Miniconfs, the day will consist of a mixture of
scheduled talks and "unconference" discussions/lightning talks. It is
anticipated that talks will be mainly aimed at existing kernel
developers, though don't let that stop you from coming if you’re less
experienced! Interesting contributions relating to BSD and other Free
Software operating systems will also be considered, though the focus
will be primarily on Linux.

Who can attend?

Anyone with an LCA ticket can attend. There may be a limited number of
miniconf-only tickets available.

Who can speak?

Anyone with something interesting and kernel-related to say! You will
need to have an LCA ticket though - unfortunately miniconf speakers
don't qualify for speakers' tickets.

We strongly encourage both first-time and seasoned speakers from all
backgrounds, ages, genders, nationalities, ethnicities, religions and
abilities. Like the main LCA conference itself, we respect and encourage
diversity at our miniconf. If you would like any assistance with
creating a proposal, don't hesitate to ask!

Submission process

This year, we're handling miniconf submissions through LCA's main
submission system.

To submit a talk:

* Create an account on the LCA website (if you haven't already)[2]

Talks should be between 20 and 40 minutes (including any questions).
Please indicate your preferred timeslot length in your submission.

Unconference topics will be decided on the day, but if you want to give
me a heads up on something you'd like to discuss, shoot me an email.

* 21 November 2016, 23:59 (Anywhere on Earth) - CFP closes

If you've got any other questions about the Kernel Miniconf that I
haven't covered here, ping me at

For general LCA questions, ask or @linuxconfau
on Twitter.

[0], obviously!

(Literally the only domain name still in existence - the
Australian Linux community somehow managed to end up with an
entire 2LD to itself...)
