Call for Proposals: DebConf22, Kosovo

The DebConf Content team would like to call for proposals for the
DebConf22 conference, which will take place in Prizren, Kosovo, from
July 17th to 24th, 2022.  It will be preceded by DebCamp from July 10th
to 16th.

## Submitting an Event

You can now submit an [event proposal]. Events are not limited to
traditional presentations or informal sessions (BoFs): we welcome
submissions of tutorials, performances, art installations, debates, or any
other format of event that you think would be of interest to the Debian

Regular sessions may either be 20 or 45 minutes long (including time for
questions), other kinds of sessions (workshops, demos, lightning talks,
...) could have different durations. Please choose the most suitable
duration for your event and explain any special requests.

In order to submit a talk, you will need to create an account on the site.
We suggest that Debian Salsa account holders (including DDs and DMs) use
their [Salsa] login when creating an account. However, this isn't required,
as you can sign up with an e-mail address and password.

## Timeline

* Submission deadline: Friday, April 15

## Topics and Tracks

Though we invite proposals on any Debian or FLOSS related subject, we have
some broad topics on which we encourage people to submit proposals,
including but not limited to:

- Introduction to Free Software & Debian
- Packaging, policy, and Debian infrastructure
- Systems administration, automation and orchestration
- Cloud and containers
- Security
- Community, diversity, local outreach and social context
- Internationalization, Localization and Accessibility
- Embedded & Kernel
- Debian in Arts & Science
- Debian Blends and Debian derived distributions

## Open Day

This call for proposals also targets [Open Day], a day of activities targeted
at the general public on July 20th. Topics of interest range from topics
specific to Debian to the greater Free Software community and maker movement.
The idea of Open Day is to bring the general public closer to Debian and
vice-versa, so activity proposals that go in that direction are more than

If you are interested in presenting on Open Day, let us know in the "Notes"
field of your submission. We might also invite proponents that are not
specifically targeting Open Day to present in it if we find that the topic
fits the above goals.

## Talk proposal help on IRC

If you want to submit a talk proposal but would like to discuss it first, feel free to
pop by the #debconf-content IRC channel on OFTC, where the DebConf content team will be
available to help potential speakers prepare their talk proposals for DebConf.

Just make sure you stick around the channel if you don't get an immediate response,
 because it could be coming from the other side of the world.

## Code of Conduct

Our event is covered by a [Code of Conduct] designed to ensure everyone’s
safety and comfort. The code applies to all attendees, including speakers
and the content of their presentations. Do not hesitate to contact us at
<content@debconf.org> if you have any questions or are unsure about certain
content you’d like to present.

## Video Coverage

Providing video is one of the [conference goals], as it makes the content
accessible to a wider audience. Unless speakers opt-out, scheduled talks may be
streamed live over the Internet to promote remote participation, and recordings
will be published later under the [DebConf license] (MIT/Expat), as well as
presentation slides and papers whenever available.
