We are pleased to announce the Call for Refereed-Track Proposals for the 2020 edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on August 25-27 in conjunction with the Kernel Summit and Linux Maintainers Summit, which takes place on August 28th.

Refereed track presentations are 50 minutes in length (which includes time for questions and discussion) and should focus on a specific aspect of the “plumbing” in the Linux system. Examples of Linux plumbing include core kernel subsystems, toolchains, container runtimes, core libraries, windowing systems, management tools, device support, media creation/playback, accelerators, hardware interaction, and so on. The best presentations are not about finished work, but rather problems, proposals, or proof-of-concept solutions that require face-to-face discussions and debate.

As was the case in 2019, and because Plumbers is not co-located with Open Source Summit this year, we are scheduling the refereed-track talks across all three days. This allows attendees to choose between microconferences and refereed-track talks in all time-slots and also provides a conflict-free schedule for the refereed-track talks.

Linux Plumbers Conference Program Committee members will be reviewing all submitted sessions. High-quality submission that cannot be accepted due to the limited number of slots will be forwarded to the Microconference leads for further consideration. We also encourage submitters to consider BoF sessions.

To submit a refereed track talk proposal follow the instructions at this website:

Submissions were due on or before Wednesday May 7, 2020 at 11:59PM Pacific Time however the Call for Refereed-Track Proposals is remaining opened for the time being. Each successful submission gets a free registration, but for only one speaker per presentation.
