Proposed Microconferences for 2014

  You missed your chance to list here your proposed topic: We are now full!  (BoFs still welcome!)

Just because a topic listed here does not mean that we will have a microconference dedicated to it! In order for that to happen, we need *your* help. A chair (or co-chair) for that working session has to be found; problems which the community is interested in solving have to be identified; key participants have to submit presentation or discussion proposals that address these problems, and so on. Based on how enthusiastically the community responds in organizing working session, the program committee will select 10-12 working session topics to run during the LPC.

If you add topics to this list, please create a page and add it to the above list where problem statements, key projects, and key individuals can be listed. And please leave your contact information, and/or suggestions for who would be a good leader for that working session. The Topic Template is a good starting point for your wiki page. Example good wiki pages from last year include Automotive and Android

The success or failure of a working session, and whether we decide to run that working session, is critically dependent on having a good leader for that track. See the Responsibilities of a working session leader if you are interested in help making that working session, and the Linux Plumbers Conference, a success.


Microconference proposals converted to BOF proposals should be listed here:
