CeBIT Open Source Forum Call for Papers
One of CeBIT’s most successful forums returns in 2015.
The CeBIT 2015 Open Source Forum features a comprehensive daily program of more than 60 presentations, illuminating all aspects of Linux, open source, and free software.
From systemd to Raspberry Pi
The Call for Papers is aimed at practitioners, developers, and strategists from the open source, business, and government communities. Issues of specific interest are systems administration/automation, security/privacy, drivers/kernel, the future of Linux, open hardware/Raspberry Pi, and much more.
