|Subject:||Kernel Summit 2014 Call for Topics|
|Date:||Fri, 02 May 2014 11:13:08 -0400|
The annual Kernel Summit for 2014 will be held August 18th through the 20th in Chicago, overlapping with LinuxCon North America (which will be held August 20th through the 22nd) at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers. The format of the Kernel Summit will be: * Monday: Core attendee's plenary sessions * Tuesday: Workshops and break out sessions * Wednesday: Dual-track technical sessions in parallel with LinuxCon The Core plenary day will be focused on topics which are not appropriate for any of the subsystem-specific workshops or minisummits, and which cannot be easily resolved using the normal e-mail and IRC channels. These include issues about our overall development process, and topics which span multiple subsystems. The workshops are intended for kernel subsystems or other topics where 10-30 people need to have some intensive discussions for half or full day. There will also be a room for specialized discussions that are come up at the last minute, or which perhaps don't require as much time as a workshop. The technical sessions will be open to all workshop attendees as well as the core attendees; program committee will also consider "information sharing" topics if they are clearly of interest to the wider development community (i.e., topics that could be considered advanced training for subsystem maintainers: memory barriers, RCU, git workflows, etc.) For space reasons, we try to cap the attendence of the core plenary day to around 80-100 people. We have created an initial list of nominations for that core plenary day, based on the top 3rd or 4th percentile of commit authors or reviewers over the past 16 months. You can see that list here: http://goo.gl/FsVUFX Since it is a mechnically generated list, it's obviously going to be incomplete (even if it has 200 people). So if you think that there are people who should be on the list, you can nominate people (self nominations are ok), by sending a note to: email@example.com As in past years, people who suggest particularly interesting topics and who actively and positively in engage in the discussion of those topics will get special consideration by the program committee. If you would like to suggest a topic, please send a separate e-mail for each topic, so we can more easily track the discussion, and plase tag your e-mail with [CORE TOPIC] or [TECH TOPIC] depending on whether the topic would be a better fit for the Monday sessions or the Wednesday sessions. Also include a list of people who you think would be valuable in participating in the discussion. If possible, please send topic requests before May 15th, since that's about when we will start evaluating the list of potential attendees. Obviously, if new topics come up after that, please still send them to us! For one thing, invites will be going out in stages. For another, we want to make sure the kernel summit will be as useful as possible, and that means if you think there's something that would be valuable for the kernel community needs to consider, we'd like to know about it!
