The Linux Foundation is very excited to announce the launch of LinuxCon, a brand new annual North American technical conference.  The 1st Annual LinuxCon is taking place September 21 – 25, 2009 in Portland, OR.  Registration and Call for Papers are now open - details are below.

Linux is poised to become a 50 billion dollar ecosystem by 2011. While there are many point developer conferences for Linux today, there is not a comprehensive and high quality gathering for developers and users of Linux to come together and collaborate.  LinuxCon will do just this – bringing together the best and brightest the Linux community has to offer, including core developers, administrators, end users, community managers and industry experts.  It will also touch on those areas that revolve around Linux, including enterprise computing, the mobile/embedded arena, cloud computing and virtualization.  LinuxCon will gather the best technical talent in the world with the decision makers and experts guiding the Linux ecosystem into the future.

Attend LinuxCon and be a part of this community!

LinuxCon will feature over 75 conference presentations divided among five tracks and three audience types (Developers, Operations and Business), tutorials, BoF sessions, keynotes, roundtables, a product & technology showcase and sponsored mini-summits, as well as countless networking opportunities in developer lounges and evening events. LinuxCon offers a unique conference experience that encourages collaboration, progress and interaction.

With top notch educational content and collaboration opportunities, those that attend LinuxCon will leave more knowledgeable and better positioned for success in the year to come.

CALL FOR PAPERS IS NOW OPEN - We encourage everyone in the community who is interested in speaking to apply.

There will be three different categories for submissions: Developer (kernel, core development, software engineering), Operations (sys admin and management, systems architecture, Linux migration and deployment), and Business (open source governance, enterprise, ecosystem)

Each of these groups plays a key role in the Linux community and we want to make sure that they are represented at LinuxCon.  The deadline for paper submissions is April 15th.

REGISTER TO ATTEND BY APRIL 15TH FOR THE DISCOUNTED RATE OF $299!  For information, to register or to submit a speaking proposal, please click here.
