Linux Foundation: Events for 2011 include new LinuxCon Europe
The Linux Foundation has published its 2011 event schedule and confirmed that its premier Linux conference, LinuxCon, is coming to Europe this year. LinuxCon Europe will take place from the 26th to the 28th of October in Prague, Czech Republic. Amanda McPherson, Linux Foundation VP of Marketing and Developer Programs said "As we approach the 20th anniversary of Linux and the operating system experiences increasing adoption throughout Europe, it is only fitting that we host LinuxCon where Linux originally took root".
The Foundation has also announced the Call for Presentations for its entire 2011 event line-up – this includes its LinuxCon conferences in North America, Japan, Brazil and Europe, as well as other events focusing on embedded Linux in both North America and Europe. Following the announcement in October of last year that the Linux Foundation and the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum (CELF) would be merged, the Foundation will organise and host the Embedded Linux Conferences (ELC) in North America and Europe.
Discussing the 2011 event schedule, Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin said, "The Linux Foundation’s events provide distinctly unique forums where technical content is shared and put into action to advance the Linux platform," adding that, "The Linux Foundation’s 2011 event line-up reflects our commitment to the highest quality content and to prioritizing the regions and topics having the biggest impact on the future of Linux."
Further information, including event dates and locations, as well as registration details and the Call for Presentations for all of the 2011 events, can be found on the Linux Foundation's Events web page. The Linux Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the task of promoting the growth of Linux. Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, is himself sponsored by the foundation.
