We are pleased to announce the Call for Microconferences for the 2016 edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which will be held in Santa Fe, NM, USA on November 2-4 in conjunction with Linux Kernel Summit.
A microconference is a collection of collaborative sessions focused on problems in a particular area of the Linux plumbing, which includes the kernel, libraries, utilities, UI, and so forth, but can also focus on cross-cutting concerns such as security, scaling, energy efficiency, or a particular use case. Good microconferences result in solutions to these problems and concerns, while the best microconferences result in patches that implement those solutions. For more information on submitting a microconference proposal, see http://www.linuxplumbersconf.org/2016/participate/#cfmc.
Of course, there is more to Plumbers than microconferences, so look for upcoming calls for refereed-track presentations, BoFs, hackfests, and lightning talks. We hope to see you in Santa Fe this coming November!
