KDE and openSUSE Announce Opening of CfP for Dedicated COSCUP Track

Jos Poortvliet-5
COSCUP, the largest FLOSS conference organized by local communities in
Taiwan, will feature a special track dedicated to KDE and openSUSE, jointly
organized by these communities. The CfP team is happy to announce today that
we're ready to accept your session proposals!

At COSCUP 2011, several KDE and openSUSE contributors gave talks and
presented ‘cool stuff’ at their booths. This year, we'll do even more! KDE
and openSUSE will collaboratively organize a full two-day track at the
upcoming COSCUP conference in August 2012. A CfP committee has been set up
and proposals can be send in starting today. June 15 is the deadline for
proposals which can be send to [hidden email].

Call for Papers

The program committee is looking for presentations about KDE and openSUSE.
Please note that the talks do NOT have to be related to both KDE and
openSUSE. KDE and openSUSE happily welcome talks about KDE on other
distributions or other (non) desktop technologies like GNOME or OpenStack on
openSUSE.

The committee suggests the following topics:
* desktop technologies (d-bus, gstreamer, etcetera)
* embedded and mobile
* distribution technologies (packaging tools, build systems, etcetera)
* challenges in adapting software to local needs (L10N, I18N)
* cross-desktop and cross-distribution collaboration
* cloud computing and integration into the desktop
* or anything else you think the world should hear about!

The call for papers ends on June 15. Please send in a proposal of about 200
words, accompanied by a ~50 words biography, in either English or Chinese,
to [hidden email] before that date.

Program committee
The Program Committee for the KDE/openSUSE track at COSCUP consists of the
following people:
* Franklin Weng (KDE)
* Aaron J. Seigo (KDE)
* Sakana (openSUSE)
* Al Cho (openSUSE)
* Bryen Yunashko (openSUSE)
* Greg Kroah-Hartman (the Linux Foundation)
