Call for Papers

Given the recent advances in wearable technology, embedded platforms, and fruitful marriages between open design and technology, open source software and hardware is delivering a number of tangible and intangible benefits for our daily lives.

Life is better with Linux.

And that’s exactly what our conference theme is. linux.conf.au 2016 will focus on how Linux and open source technologies are improving lives - through humanitarian projects, wearables that give us greater control and choice over our health and habits, and which enrich our lives through protecting our privacy and our ‘digital health’.
What types of presentations are we looking for?

Presentations - the standard, time-tested format for most linux.conf.au. A sage on the stage presents interesting and hopefully informative and engaging content, with time for questions. Around 45 mins total.
Tutorials - double slots with a defined syllabus, where delegates walk out with a key skill or ability. Some prep work is usually required.
Prototypes - we’d like to do something different this year and introduce 45 minute sessions called ‘Prototypes’ - where Makers, Hackers, and Voiders are able to show and tell what they’ve made. It could be a hardware prototype, a software prototype, or a ‘wetware’ prototype - where technology is interacting with the biomedical field for things like implantable NFC chips.

What topics are we looking for?

We’re still expecting to have our time-honoured classic talks - the state of the Linux Kernel, advancements in architecture, storage, file systems and utilities.

But we’d also like to see lots of talks from people who use Linux and F/LOSS to make our lives better. To make better people. And a better humanity.

How do we develop for wearables and implantables? How do you do unit tests for an implantable wetware device? What happens when we see the first IoT murder? And who owns our data from wearable devices - us, or our insurance companies? Linux is now embedded in a raft of wearable, tiny devices - which present challenges and opportunities to be met and maximised.

These are the stories we would like to hear.
Deadlines

The tentative close date for Presentations, Tutorials and Prototypes is 6th July. If you are proposing a Miniconf, you must submit your proposal by 6th July.
