DebConf Organizers blog
Today we finished the talk selection process. We are very grateful to everyone who decided to submit talks and events for DebConf14.
If you have submitted an event, please check your email :). If you have not received any confirmation regarding your talk status, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
During the selection process, we bore in mind the number of talk slots during the conference, as well as maintaining a balance among the different submitted topics. We are pleased to announce that we have received a total of 115 events, of which 80 have been approved (69%). Approval means your event will be scheduled during the conference and you will have video coverage.
The list of approved talks can be found on the following link: https://summit.debconf.org/debconf14/all/
If you got an email telling your talk have being approved, and your talk is not listed, don’t panic. Check the status on summit, and make sure to select a track, if you have some track suggestions please mail us and tell us about it.
This year, we expect to also have a sort of “unconference” schedule. This will take place during the designated “hacking time”. During that time the talks rooms will be empty, and ad hoc meetings can be scheduled on-site while we are in the Conference. The method for booking a room for your ad hoc meeting will be decided and announced later, but is expected to be flexible (i.e: open scheduling board / 1 day or less in advance booking), Please don’t abuse the system: bear in mind the space will be limited, and only book your event if you gather enough people to work on your idea.
Please make sure to read the email regarding your talk. :) and prepare yourself.
Time is ticking and we will be happy to meet you in Portland.
