DebConf9 Call for Papers ------------------------ We invite submissions of proposals for papers, presentations, discussion sessions and tutorials for Debconf9. Submissions will be accepted until April 15th. This year submission of a formal written paper for the conference proceedings is again optional, though encouraged. Providing a written paper in advance means that interested people can attend your session ready with ideas for discussion, and especially helps those who find it hard to follow rapid English speech. DebConf talks will be broadcast live on the internet where possible, and videos of the talks will be published on the web along with the presentation slides and papers. To submit papers, first register for DebConf as described in the mail registration send to firstname.lastname@example.org today. Then use the 'New event/paper' button on https://penta.debconf.org/penta/submission/dc9 and fill in information about your submission on the various tabs. You can use the same interface to submit papers for DebConf and DebCamp, by choosing the appropriate 'track'. Looking forward to welcoming you to Cáceres in July, the DebConf team About DebConf ------------- DebConf is the Debian Project's developer conference. In addition to a full schedule of technical, social and policy talks, DebConf provides an opportunity for developers, contributors and other interested people to meet in person and work together more closely. It has taken place annually since 2000 in locations as varied as Canada, Finland, Mexico, Scotland, and Argentina. DebConf9 will take place in Cáceres from Friday 24th until Thursday 30th July. DebConf will be preceded by DebCamp, from Thursday 16th until Thursday 23rd July. DebCamp is a smaller, less formal event giving an opportunity for group work on Debian projects. If you are interested in helping by working as a volunteer during DebConf, please contact email@example.com If you or your company are interested in sponsoring DebConf by donating money or lending equipment, please contact the sponsorship team at firstname.lastname@example.org More information about DebConf9 can be found on the conference website: https://debconf9.debconf.org/ About Debian ------------ The Debian Project is an association of Free Software developers who volunteer their time and effort in order to produce the free operating system Debian GNU/Linux. About Cáceres ------------- Cáceres (pronounced like Katheres, with an accent on the a) is the capital of Cáceres Province. There have been settlements near Cáceres since prehistoric times. Evidence of this can be found in the caves of Maltravieso and El Conejar. The city was founded by the ancient Romans in 25 BC. The old town, or Ciudad Monumental, still has its ancient walls; this part of town is also well known for its multitude of storks' nests. The walls contain a perfect medieval town setting with no outward signs of modernity. For this reason many films have been shot here. The Universidad de Extremadura and two astronomical observatories are also located in Cáceres. Cáceres was declared a World Heritage City by UNESCO in 1986 because of the city's blend of Roman, Islamic, Northern Gothic and Italian Renaissance styles, fruit of the many battles fought here throughout history. An amazing 30 towers from the Muslim period still stand in Cáceres, of which the Torre del Bujaco is the most famous.
