DebConf11 call for contributions

We invite submissions of proposals for papers, presentations, 
discussion sessions and tutorials for Debconf11. Submissions don't 
have to be limited to traditional talks, you could propose 
a performance, art installation, debate, or anything else. Official 
submissions will be accepted until May 8th 2011, 23.59 UTC.

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. Talks+Q&A should be 45 minutes long, 
with a 15 minute break between events.

This year, we will continue to organize talks into "tracks". If you 
have a proposal for a DebConf track, such as "Debian Science", "Debian 
Infrastructure", or "Community Outreach", please contact 
debconf-team@lists.debconf.org. If you would like to be a track 
coordinator, please volunteer on that list. Talks will be added to 
tracks at a later date.

There will be a poster session this year. Posters allow you to present 
information throughout the week, instead of just at a single talk. 
A poster can help to reach a broader audience or promote a weeklong 

For up to date information, and information on submission of events or 
posters, please see

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.

DebConf11 will take place in Banja Luka, in Republika Srpska, Bosnia 
and Herzegovina from Sunday 24th to Saturday 30th July, 2011.

DebConf will be preceded by DebCamp, from Sunday 17th to Saturday 23rd 
July, 2011. DebCamp is a smaller, less formal event intended for group 
work on Debian projects.
