FLOSS UK - Spring 2017
The Studio, Manchester
Worskhops 14th March
2 day Conference 15th & 16th March 2017
FLOSS UK Council are now accepting submissions for presentations and workshops for 
our main annual conference event. In recent years we have evolved into the UK's 
primary support organisation for Free/Libre Open Source Systems (FLOSS) supporting 
Free and Open Technology. 
The Spring Conference is the UK's longest running event supporting systems and 
network administrators. But as FLOSS UK has evolved to support open networks, 
software, hardware and data so our primary conference has become open to 
submissions on these areas. 
If you would like to offer a forum or half-day workshop that might interest our target 
audience, please submit a proposal. 
All submissions are judged using a 'blind' process.  Please avoid any identifying 
information in the body of your proposal.
If you have a novel solution to a problem, experience of a particular application or 
hardware platform, tips and tricks for fellow open source delegates, or a favourite tool 
you could talk about, use of open data, please submit a paper for consideration by the 
programme committee. 
There will be a prize for the best conference talk. Bursaries may be made available for 
accepted speakers who are unable to afford travel costs, subject to Council approval 
with all bursaries being fixed in advance. All accepted speakers receive a 
complimentary Conference place and a ticket for the conference dinner. 
We are also seeking lightning talks for the event – please contact us if you have 
something you want to schedule in the programme – Lightning Talk speakers who 
make no other presentation are not eligible for free conference places or dinner.

Workshops: Tuesday 14th March 2017
Conference: 15th & 16th March 2017
