OpenFest 2017 - call for participation
OpenFest 2017 will happen on the 4th and 5th of November, 2017, in the "John Atanasoff" forum in Sofia Tech Park.
OpenFest is a conference that popularizes free and open source projects and software and a forum for exchange of ideas and good practices. The organizers strive to provide a place for open art forms and to facilitate the open exchange of knowledge.
We would like to receive your lecture and workshop submissions that belong to the following tracks until September 24, 2017:
Technical – for any presentations about open and free technologies. This is the place to tell us what new stuff did you discover through the year, which would be useful and understood even by novices.
Civic Hacking – any projects and ideas about improving our society through open source technologies or open data belong to this track.
Advanced Technical – for more complex technical talks. If you want to tell us what assembly optimizations you're doing, what new have you added to the Linux kernel or how to create a better memory allocator, this is the track for you.
OpenBiz – if your business uses free/open source technologies or develops them, we'll be glad to have you as a speaker to tell all about it to our audience.
Social – even though the conference is predominantly technical, there's always something else to be told that's important and useful for the community. Net neutrality, journalism, psychology, food hacking and even sports may be included.
Education – Education, technologies in it and its advancement.
OpenArt – if you're an artist and especially if you're using open technologies for it - please come and show them to us :)
Misc – Misc.
