We are pleased to announce the Call for Refereed Presentation
Proposals for the 2017 edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which
will be held in Los Angeles, CA, USA on 13-15 September in conjunction
with The Linux Foundation Open Source Summit.
Refereed Presentations are 45 minutes in length and should focus on a
specific aspect of the “plumbing” in the Linux system. Examples of
Linux plumbing include core kernel subsystems, core libraries,
windowing systems, management tools, device support, media
creation/playback, and so on. The best presentations are not about
finished work, but rather problems, proposals, or proof-of-concept
solutions that require face-to-face discussions and debate.
Following the feedback from 2016, we’re keeping the Refereed
Presentations track running throughout the three days of the
conference. This track will be held jointly with the Open Source
Summit on Wednesday 13 September.
Linux Plumbers Conference Program Committee members will be reviewing
all submitted proposals. High-quality submissions that cannot be
accepted due to the limited number of slots will be forwarded to both
the Open Source Summit and the Microconference leads for further
