Attendance will be open to registered LinuxCon attendees. Presentations will be selected via a CFP process by the program committee.

Call for Participation

The CFP is currently open.

Proposals should be submitted in plain text via email to lss-pc (_at_) before the end of June 4th 2010.

The program committee currently seeks proposals for:

  • Presentations:
 Brief technical talks in 30 minute slots, including at least 10 minutes of
 discussion (i.e.  the maximum length of the presentation alone is 20 minutes).
 Papers are encouraged, and slides should be minimal. Presentation abstracts
 should be approximately 150 words in length.

  • Panel discussion topics:
 If you'd like to see an issue discussed in a Q&A style panel, send it in.  Note that
 this may result in you volunteering to participate in a panel.

Accepted speakers will be notified by June 9th, 2010.

We will probably receive more proposals than can be accommodated. If your talk is not accepted, you may wish to give a lightning talk or raise a topic in a discussion panel. Lightning talks and discussion panel agendas will be coordinated closer to the event on the event mailing list, and on-site.


If you're attending, or interested in following the event, subscribe to the Linux Security Summit mailing list:

This is for general discussion, event updates etc., and will also be used to estimate attendance numbers, so do please subscribe if you are planning to attend.
