DebConf13 preliminary schedule available

We are happy to announce that the schedule for the upcoming DebConf13 in Vaumarcus, Switzerland, is available! It is still possible for some changes to occur, as we always try to accept new proposals, even those submitted during the conference.

DebConf13 talks will mostly happen in two rooms simultaneously, except for a few plenaries which will be presented in the main room with no parallel event. A third room will be available for discussion groups and ad-hoc sessions. As usual, we’ve tried to cluster related activities in sequence, even though it was not always possible. Besides that there will be many tracks covering specific topics, which are:

  • Debian for the cloud
  • Building and porting
  • Community outreach
  • Real time communications
  • Debian blends and derivatives
  • Quality assurance
  • Debian boot
  • Debian in education
  • Debian teams

There will also be two special tracks, since DebConf is not only about hacking, talks and discussions:

  • Social activities, which includes a poetry night, the traditional cheese and wine party, our group photo, a day trip, the conference dinner etc.
  • Debian 20th birthday, an event open to the general public to celebrate Debian’s 20th birthday (details to come soon!).

As in previous years, we provide various ways to access the schedule:

  • Plain nice html export, available for everyone without needing a login.
  • The same as above, for people registered in our “Pentabarf” conference management system: This one has one extra feature compared to the non-login version: You can rate an event and its speaker(s) after you attended it. Please take the opportunity to do so, your feedback is very important both for the speaker(s) and for the organizing team!
  • An iCal file
  • An xCal file
  • An XML file
