Call for Microconferences

We are pleased to announce the Call for Microconferences for the 2017
edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which will be held in Los
Angeles, CA on 13-15 September co-located with the Linux Foundation
Open Source Summit.

A microconference is a collection of collaborative sessions focused on
problems in a particular area of the Linux plumbing, which includes the
kernel, libraries, utilities, UI, and so forth, but can also focus on
cross-cutting concerns such as security, scaling, energy efficiency, or
a particular use case. Good microconferences result in solutions to
these problems and concerns, while the best microconferences result in
patches that implement those solutions. For more information on
submitting a microconference proposal, see

Of course, there is more to Plumbers than microconferences, so look for
upcoming calls for refereed-track presentations, BoFs, hackfests, and
lightning talks. We hope to see you in Los Angeles this September
