2017 Xen Project Developer and Design Summit: CfP open from now to April 14, Event is held July 11-13, 2017 in Budapest

Lars Kurth-4
Dear Community Members,

I am excited to announce that registration and the call for proposals is open for Xen Project Developer and Design Summit 2017, which will be held in Budapest, Hungary from July 11-13, 2017. The Xen Project Developer and Design Summit combines the formats of Xen Project Developer Summits with Xen Project Hackathons, and brings together the Xen Project’s community. We will aim to have talks in the mornings and smaller interactive design and problem solving sessions in the afternoon.

Note that the CfP period is quite short: if you need extra time, or you otherwise have difficulties with the CfP please contact me via [hidden email].

Submit a Talk

Several formats are being accepted for speaking proposals, including:

* Presentations and Panels: these are presentations and panels as we always had them at Developer Summits in the past
* Interactive design and problem solving sessions. These sessions can be submitted as part of the CFP, but we will reserve a number of design sessions to be allocated during the event. Proposers of design sessions are expected to host and moderate design sessions following the format we have used at Xen Project Hackathons. If you have not participated in these in the past, check out past event reports from 2016 (https://blog.xenproject.org/2016/04/26/xen-project-hackathon-16-event-report), 2015 (https://blog.xenproject.org/2015/05/07/xen-project-hackathon-15-event-report) and 2013 (https://blog.xenproject.org/2013/05/28/event-report-xen-hackathon-2013).

Never talked at a conference before? Don’t worry! We encourage new speakers to submit for our events and have plenty of resources to help you prepare for your presentation.

Here are some dates to remember for submissions and in general:

* CFP Close: April 14, 2017
* CFP Notifications: May 5, 2017
* Schedule Announced: May 16, 2017
* Event: July 11-13, 2017

What is different to past events?
