Linux expo calls for papers

Aug 14, 2008 — by Eric Brown — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

The seventh annual Southern California Linux Exposition (SCALE) has opened its call for papers (CFP). Scheduled for February 20-22, 2009 at the Westin LAX Hotel in Los Angeles, SCALE has added beginners' and developers' tracks along with its general sessions.

There does not appear to be a particular embedded focus to the conference this year. However, a developers' track called “Core operating system issues” may offer some opportunities for embedded developers to present papers of general interest. Suggested topics include:

  • Kernel internals and enhancements
  • Unix variants: Tools and appliances
  • Operating systems for embedded platforms
  • Virtualization
  • System administration: Low-level details
  • In-depth programming/scripting with open source languages

Proposals should be submitted as one-page abstracts including a title, name, affiliation, bio, email, and an optional passport-size photo. Submitters are asked to include a bullet list or brief description of main points. Speakers should also list the intended track (beginners, developers, or general), as well as specific presentation technology requirements.

Prospective speakers may send their proposal via email no later than Nov. 30th. The full CFP for the February 20-22, 2009, SCALE conference at the Westin LAX Hotel in Los Angeles, may be found here.
