See Temporary Visitors to the U.S.

How do I get an official invitation to the conference for my visa application?

After you register, email register@linuxplumbersconf.org and we’ll send you a pdf invitation letter you can print.

How do I submit a microconference proposal?

If you wish to submit a topic as a microconference, please submit it to the General track and add “Please consider as microconference” to the description. Please note that a successful microconference requires buy-in and participation from maintainers and other high-profile people active in the area. So, if you submit a microconference proposal, you will also need to encourage others to submit talk proposals relevant to your topic.

The program committee has the final say in choice of microconference topics. Each microconference must have a runner, who will have final say in what talks are accepted into that microconference.
