openSUSE Summit: Call for Papers announced
The openSUSE project has announced that the Call for Papers for this year's upcoming openSUSE Summit is now open. The event, the first held by the project in the Americas, will be co-located with SUSECon, the main SUSE Linux conference, and take place on 21 and 22 September 2012 in Orlando, Florida.
The organisers of the summit for the openSUSE Linux distribution are seeking proposals for presentations, Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions and work shops, for one of three tracks. These include the openSUSE Community track, which covers project governance and organisation as well as involvement in the community, and the openSUSE Tech track for information on development, packaging and behind the scenes work.
The open World track is, the organisers say, provided as a platform for attendees to present their projects and may include "demos and HowTos, FOSS project introductions, or other interesting topics from areas such as the "Maker movement". All proposals must be submitted by midnight EDT on 15 June 2012
More details about the event, including Call for Papers requirements and submission information, can be found on the openSUSE Summit web site. According to Jos Poortvliet, openSUSE Community Manager for SUSE, the programme for the summit will be published to the site on or before 23 July.
