Flock Call For Papers (and Registration) is Open!

For eight years, Fedora users and developers have gathered at an event named for them, the Fedora Users and Developers conference (FUDCon). But we’ve grown, and it’s time for a new approach: Flock.

Flock will bring together the Global Fedora communities for three days of scheduled content with one optional day at the end for open hacking. Unlike the barcamp style we've used in the past for FUDCon, Flock will accept submissions in advance for talks, hackfests, sprints, and workshops. The schedule will be built based on the community's votes on those submissions.

This is a Fedora focused event, but we welcome participation from the entire Free Software community. If you have an idea on how we can improve Fedora, we'd love to hear it!

Dates: August 9-12, 2013
Location: College of Charleston (Charleston, SC, USA)

* Talk (45 minutes)
