Subject: LGM 2012: Last call for talks
Two days are left for submitting talks, workshops, and panels for the
upcoming Libre Graphics Meeting!
Please consider that the audience we expect in Vienna is mostly people who
are already part of one of our projects or graphic artists who already
know our products. For this reason, we will favor talks about topics that
are interesting for people who are active in our projects or who want to
spread technologies, ideas, or code to other projects.
We still would love to provide publicity for your project, but we think
the best way to do that is via short talks and lightning talks. If you
have more to say than what fits in those formats, you're welcome to submit
more than one "shorter" talk to cover different aspects of your project.
It's our goal to have at least one short talk (about 10 minutes) or
lightning talk (5 minutes) for each project represented at LGM. You're
also welcome to submit proposals for workshops, where you will give an
introduction to your software or teach specific advanced skills.
We also ask you to use the same submission form to announce BOFs, work
session, and project meetings. Please, announce them as soon as you start
planning them, so that we can make sure that we have enough rooms for all
If you're interested in having a booth where you can sell products related
to your project or demo your project, please fill the submission form as
well. We can't give you any guarantee that we will able to provide a
booth, but we will try to!
Some final remarks:
- The 1st March deadline is most important for full talks. For all other
proposals, we will be much more flexible, as long as we can accommodate
- If you need a visa, please get in touch with us in a timely manner!
- Don't forget to register as soon as you know that you will be coming.
