The KDE and openSUSE communities welcome you to COSCUP 2012!
COSCUP is the largest FLOSS conference organized by local communities in Taiwan.
The conference has sessions for new users, enthusiastic promoters, coders or anyone who is interested in cutting-edge FLOSS technologies。The goal is to create a friendly and informative environment for people from different communities to make friends, learn new technologies and inspire each other.
At COSCUP 2011, several KDE and openSUSE contributors gave talks and presented ‘cool stuff’ at their booths.
This year, we want to do better!
We are glad to announce that in 2012 the COSCUP conference will feature a full two-day track dedicated entirely to KDE and openSUSE. People from both organisations have teamed up to bring you the best talks possible。
But for that, we need your help!
The program committee is looking for talks about KDE and openSUSE. Possible topics are (but not limited to):
desktop technologies (d-bus, gstreamer, etcetera)
embedded and mobile
distribution technologies (packaging tools, build systems, etcetera)
challenges in adapting software to local needs (L10N, I18N)
cloud computing and integration into the desktop
or anything else you think the world should hear about!
Although the ties between KDE and openSUSE have historically been very tight the talks do not have to be about both KDE and openSUSE.
Both communities are very open and we will welcome talks about KDE on other distributions (Fedora, Ubuntu, etcetera), or other desktops on openSUSE (GNOME, XFCE, etcetera).
The call for papers ends on June 15. Please send in a proposal of about 200 words, accompanied by a ~50 words biography, in either English or Chinese, to firstname.lastname@example.org before that date.
