Call for Proposals
The second Online Mini-Debconf, centered around the theme of gaming on Linux, will take place on 21 and 22 November, 2020. If you love games, and would like to contribute a talk, then please click here to submit your talk (sign-in required). Talk slots are 20 minutes or 45 minutes long, including time for questions. We would prefer talks to be pre-recorded, with a live Q&A session on the day of broadcast. If you have a strong preference, then it’s also ok to perform the talk live. In this case please make sure that you have a reliable computer and Internet connection.
We are particularly keen to hear about the following topics:
- Gaming engines
- Game development on Linux or Debian
- Content/asset creation using free software tools
- Games already packaged in Debian or are viable to be packaged
- Compatibility and performance tuning for running games on Linux
But don’t let that list limit you, creativity is encouraged!
What we need from you:
- A title (doesn’t have to be perfect, can be tweaked again closer to the event)
- A short (2-3 sentences) summary of your talk
- What timezone you are in (talks will run from 10:00 - 20:00 UTC, Sat & Sun)
The majority of our audience will be comfortable hearing talks in English, although talks in other languages are welcome too.
We are accepting talks on a rolling basis, so if you are interested please submit sooner rather than later! If you are having trouble submitting your talk, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Before the Online MiniDebConf, we’re also planning two days of MiniDebCamp. During these days we can host ad-hoc sessions that might not fit in a typical 20 or 45 minute talk slot. Have fun!
