LPC 2020 Call for Proposals

Refereed-track talk proposals - Now Open

Submissions close: (TBD - still open) - Speakers notified: (TBD) - Slides due: (TBD)

The CfP for the Main Refereed track is now open.

Refereed track presentations are 45 minutes in length (which includes time for questions and discussion) and should focus on a specific aspect of the "plumbing" in the Linux system. Examples of Linux plumbing include core kernel subsystems, core libraries, windowing systems, management tools, device support, container run-times, media creation/playback, and so on. The best presentations are not about finished work, but rather problems, proposals, or proof-of-concept solutions that require face-to-face discussions and debate.

Linux Plumbers Conference Program Committee members will be reviewing all submitted proposals. High-quality submission that cannot be accepted due to the limited number of slots will be forwarded to the Microconference leads for further consideration. We also encourage submitters to consider BoF sessions and the unconference.

Microconference proposals - Now Open

Submissions close: (TBD - still open) - Speakers notified: (TBD)

The CfP for the Microconferences is now open.

A microconference is a collection of collaborative sessions focused on problems in a particular area of the Linux plumbing, which includes the kernel, libraries, utilities, UI, and so forth, but can also focus on cross-cutting concerns such as security, scaling, energy efficiency, or a particular use case. Good microconferences result in solutions to these problems and concerns, while the best microconferences result in patches that implement those solutions.

Kernel summit — now open

Submissions close: (TBD - still open) - Speakers notified: (TBD)

The goal of the Kernel Summit track will be to provide a forum to discuss specific technical issues that would be easier to resolve in person than over e-mail. The program committee will also consider "information sharing" topics if they are clearly of interest to the wider development community (i.e., advanced training in topics that would be useful to kernel developers).
