The Linux Plumbers Conference 2011 in Santa Rosa, CA, USA is coming nearer (Sep. 7-9). Together with Kay Sievers I am running the Boot&Init track, and together with Mark Brown the Audio track.
For both tracks we still need proposals. So if you haven't submitted anything yet, please consider doing so. And that quickly. i.e. if you can arrange for it, last sunday would be best, since that was actually the final deadline. However, the submission form is still open, so if you submit something really, really quickly we'll ignore the absence of time travel and the calendar for a bit. So, go, submit something. Now.
What are we looking for? Well, here's what I just posted on the audio related mailing lists:
So, please consider submitting something if you haven't done so yet. We are looking for all kinds of technical talks covering everything audio plumbing related: audio drivers, audio APIs, sound servers, pro audio, consumer audio. If you can propose something audio related -- like talks on media controller routing, on audio for ASOC/Embedded, submit something! If you care for low-latency audio, submit something. If you care about the Linux audio stack in general, submit something. LPC is probably the most relevant technical conference on the general Linux platform, so be sure that if you want your project, your work, your ideas to be heard then this is the right forum for everything related to the Linux stack. And the Audio track covers everything in our Audio Stack, regardless whether it is pro or consumer audio.
And here's what I posted to the init related lists:
So, please consider submitting something if you haven't done so yet. We are looking for all kinds of technical talks covering everything from the BIOS (i.e. CoreBoot and friends), over boot loaders (i.e. GRUB and friends), to initramfs (i.e. Dracut and friends) and init systems (i.e. systemd and friends). If you have something smart to say about any of these areas or maybe about related tools (i.e. you wrote a fancy new tool to measure boot performance) or fancy boot schemes in your favourite Linux based OS (i.e. the new Meego zero second boot ;-)) then don't hesitate to submit something on the LPC web site, in the Boot&Init track!
And now, quickly, go to the LPC website and post your session proposal in the Audio resp. Boot&Init; track! Thank you!
