Call for Proposals


We are open to a broad range of presentations from technical through to projects, tutorials and case studies. As long as the presentation/workshop touches on the Free and Open Source philosophy of sharing and collaboration to ensure the digital wasteland that pervades much of our online experience is fit for purpose and easily accessible to all, it will be considered for inclusion in the programme.

The Call for Proposals closes on Friday 23rd of March so even if you don't have anything yourself, if you want to recommend someone who you think has something worth saying by all means do so. We'd love to hear from you!

Fill this form to propose your talk.

Talks Types

  • Presentation. These are standard talks with slides, allocated in slots of 30 minutes.
