Marius Nünnerich has called for speakers for FOSDEM 2011  (5 and 6 Feb 2011)

We want to continue the great success of the last years and again we have a booth and a devroom.

Please submit your proposal to me asap. We have a devroom on
saturday this time. Talks will be 45 minutes including discussion (feel free to ask if you want to have a longer/shorter slot).

Every talk is welcome, from internal hacker discussion to real-world examples and presentations about new and shiny features. The talk committee consists of Daniel Seuffert and me.

Please submit your proposals to:

marius [at] nuenneri [dot] ch

and include the following information:

* Your name
* The title of your talk (please be descriptive, as titles will be
listed with ~250 from other projects)
* A short abstract of one to two paragraphs
* A short biography introducing yourself
* Links to related websites/blogs etc.

The deadline for submissions is 20th December 2010. The proposals will be considered by committee. If your proposal has been accepted, you will be informed by email within one week of the submission deadline. [...]

BSD Can 2011 – Call for papers – 11-14 May 2010

BSDCan 2011 will be held 13-14 May, 2011 in Ottawa at the University of Ottawa. It will be preceded by two days of tutorials on 11-12 May.

NOTE: This will be Fri/Sat with tutorials on Wed/Thu.

We are now accepting proposals for talks.

The talks should be designed with a very strong technical content bias. Proposals of a business development or marketing nature are not appropriate for this venue.

If you are doing something interesting with a BSD operating system, please submit a proposal. Whether you are developing a very complex system using BSD as the foundation, or helping others and have a story to tell about how BSD played a role, we want to hear about your experience. People using BSD as a platform for research are also encouraged to submit a proposal. Possible topics include:

  • How we manage a giant installation with respect to handling spam.
  • and/or sysadmin.
  • and/or networking.

From the BSDCan website, the Archives section will allow you to review the wide variety of past BSDCan presentations as further examples.

Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.

The schedule is:

1 Dec 2010 Proposal acceptance begins
19 Jan 2011 Proposal acceptance ends
19 Feb 2011 Confirmation of accepted proposals

Current and future FreeBSD events can be found on my FreeBSD conferences and events calendar (gcal). If you come across any that are missing, let me know.
