How to get your conference talk submission accepted (opensource.com)

Over at opensource.com, Ruth Suehle covers a talk from the recent linux.conf.au (LCA). The talk looked at the process of choosing the talks for LCA, and what constitutes a good talk topic and abstract. There is lots of good information on putting together a talk proposal that is applicable well beyond just LCA. "When you write your submission, begin by looking at last year's program. See the depth and types of topics covered and think about why those were the ones that were submitted. If you can, take a look at blog posts from the previous year to see what people found the most interesting and popular." Don't forget the LWN.net CFP deadlines calendar to help keep track of upcoming CFPs.

Calls for Presentations

Linux Plumbers Conference call for refereed-track presentations

The 2014 Linux Plumbers conference will be held October 15 to 17 in Düsseldorf, Germany; the call for presentations in the refereed track has just gone out. "Refereed track presentations are similar to traditional presentations, but preferably involve significant face-to-face discussion and debate. These presentations should focus on some specific issue in the "plumbing" in the Linux system, where example Linux-plumbing components include core kernel subsystems, core libraries, windowing systems, management tools, device support, media creation/playback, and so on."
