Linux Plumbers Conference
17-19 September 2008
Portland, Oregon USA
http://linuxplumbersconf.org/

The deadline for Linux Plumbers Conference speaker proposals has been extended to July 31st. We are looking for proposals from knowledgeable speakers on timely technical topics related to core Linux software - kernel, utilities, graphics, libraries, etc. The ideal proposal will address a specific technical problem or opportunity and suggest solutions.

Proposals targeting issues which cross sub-system boundaries - such as power management and suspend/resume - are especially encouraged. Talks will be 25 minutes or less and serve as a starting point for round-table discussion.

LPC is an opportunity to work on technical problems face-to-face with other developers, especially between developers who seldom attend the same conference or summit. The conference is organized into small working groups - microconferences - focusing on specific topics, such
as storage, power management, and graphics. One conference track is reserved for talks not part of microconferences and new microconferences, created as needed by popular demand.

Submissions are encouraged for all Linux “plumbing” related topics, not just the topics of the microconferences. Example topics:

* Networking architecture
* Wireless utilities and infrastructure
* Tools for optimizing embedded Linux applications
* Integration of system libraries, window managers, and the kernel
* Network file systems and utilities
* Support for upcoming hardware features
* Real-time/low latency

Current microconference topics include:

* The future of Linux storage
* Video input infrastructure and V4L2
* Power management and tools for efficient resource usage
* Future displays and input devices
* Dbus for desktop integration
* Linux server management
* XCB and graphics
* Audio
* Kernel/userspace interfaces
* Debugging, tuning, tracing, and profiling

If in doubt about the appropriateness of your topic for LPC, please submit anyway.

Speakers will receive free registration to the conference, which includes access to all technical sessions, the joint Kernel Summit and LPC party on Tuesday night, and an evening reception sponsored by Intel.
