2018 Linux Plumbers Conference is almost completely full

Due to overwhelming demand for tickets to the Linux Plumbers Conference, there are no additional registrations available at this time. As we finalize the makeup of microconferences, refereed talks, and so on, there will be some spots available. We will be making them available to those who have expressed interest as fairly as we can […]

CLANG/GCC/GLIBC Toolchain Microconference Accepted into 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference

The interaction between toolschain components such as GCC, GLIBC, and CLANG/LLVM with the Linux kernel and with underlying hardware has evolved rapidly. The corresponding communities continue to push on the limits of what is possible, due to new silicon as well as the performance and security changes of the past year. Specific topics include support […]

Regular Registration Quota Reached

Thank you all for the extremely strong interest in participation to the 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference this year. At this point, all of the regular registration slots for LPC 2018 have sold out. There will be a very limited number of registrations available on a first come first serve basis going forward. Those interested in […]

Thermal Microconference Accepted into 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference

As the energy density of computer systems has increased, thermal issues have become an increasingly hot topic across the spectrum from hand-held systems to internet datacenters. Because the need for thermal management is relatively new, there is a wide variety of hardware and firmware mechanisms, to say nothing of a wide variety of independently developed software to interact with these […]

RISC-V microconference accepted for Linux Plumbers Conference

The open nature of the RISC-V ecosystem has allowed contributions from both academia and industry to lead to an unprecedented number of new hardware design proposals in a very short time span. Linux support is the key to enabling these new hardware options. The primary objective of the RISC-V microconference at Plumbers is to initiate […]

Looking forward to the Kernel Summit at LPC 2018

The LPC 2018 program committee would like to reiterate that the Kernel Summit is going ahead as planned as a track within the Linux Plumbers Conference in Vancouver, BC, November 13th through 15th. However, the Maintainers Summit half day, which is by invitation only, has been rescheduled to be colocated with OSS Europe in Edinburgh, […]

CfP extended to Sunday September 9th

Happy Labor Day to those celebrating today! We have had great response to our call for 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference refereed-track submissions. However it would seem that we are attracting a lot of procrastinators given the number of emails we have received requesting for an extension. With the long weekend in North America, we are […]

Android Microconference Accepted into 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference

Android continues to find interesting new applications and problems to solve, both within and outside the mobile arena.  Mainlining continues to be an area of focus, as do a number of areas of core Android functionality, including the kernel.  Other topics include low memory killer [1], dynamically-allocated Binder devices [2], kernel namespaces [3], EAS [4], userdata filesystem checkpointing and DT [5]. We […]
