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.
