DebConf Organizers blog
The first two days of this year’s DebConf (August 15th and 16th) will constitute the Open Weekend. On these days, we are planning to have the Debian 22nd Birthday party, a Job Fair, and more than 20 hours of events and presentations, including some special invited speakers.
Given that we expect to have a broader and larger audience during the weekend, our goal is to have talks that are equally interesting for both Debian contributors and users.
If you want to present something that might be interesting to the larger Debian community, please go ahead and submit it. It can be for a talk of either 45 or 20 minutes; if you don’t have content for a full length talk, we encourage you to go for the half length one. If you consider that the event is better suited for either the OpenWeekend or the regular DebConf days, you may say so in the comment field. But keep in mind that all events might be rearranged by the content team to make sure they fit together nicely.
The deadline to submit proposals is June 15th. Please submit your talk early with a good description and a catchy title. We look forward to seeing your proposals!
If you want to submit an event please go ahead and read the original CfP on DebConf15 http://debconf15.debconf.org/proposals.xhtml.
