Call For Papers

Linux 2008 will take place at the Manchester Conference Centre from Friday 7th 
to Sunday 9th November. The conference will follow a similar pattern to that 
of previous years, with a choice of two conference streams. We also plan to 
organise some tutorials on Friday 7th November. 

We invite speakers on all aspects of Linux development. The programme will 
cover a variety of subjects, including kernel and desktop development, tools, 
applications, networking and security. Any topic likely to be of interest to 
Linux developers and enthusiasts will be considered. 


Abstracts for the main conference or tutorial programme should be accompanied 
by a short biography, and, ideally, should be about 250-500 words long. Final 
papers should normally last about 45 minutes, including 10 minutes for 
questions and answers. If you need more time for your presentation, please 
tell us when you submit your abstract.

Abstracts should be submitted to the conference organisers electronically via 
the web site. http://www.ukuug.org/events/linux2008/register.shtml 

We shall acknowledge all submissions.
