The organizers behind the Linux Plumbers' Conference have put out a call for track ideas for this Linux conference taking place in Santa Rosa in early September. Jesse Barnes asks that anyone interested read the below message.

Linux Plumbers' Conference 2011 Call for Track Ideas

The Linux Plumbers' Conference will take place in Santa Rosa, CA, September 7-9, 2011. The structure of the conference remains the same as in previous years; rather than focus on presenting completed work or problems and solutions, we encourage BoF and brainstorming sessions that gather experts from different parts of the Linux ecosystem to discuss complex problems with implications for multiple systems, with an eye toward making progress and reaching consensus on their solutions. As in past years, we aim to foster a workshop like atmosphere, where once consensus is reached, attendees can spend time developing solutions in real-time, sharing experience and evaluating trade-offs.

The program committee is now looking for track proposals. The ideal track proposal is focused enough to allow progress and attract the right participants, but also spans several components of the Linux technology stack and a set of problems that can specifically benefit from face to face discussion between the various teams involved. Proposals should include a list of projects involved, key contributors to lead discussions, and an owner for the track. The track owner is responsible for facilitating and scheduling sessions and generally making sure the track is successful (metrics for this will vary by track & discussion).

Track proposals should be sent to lpc-planning@linuxplumbersconf.org.
