>
> The LCA2010 Papers Committee welcome proposals for Papers on the
> following topics:

>    * Networking topics such as peer to peer networking, or tuning a

>      databases and grid computing
>    * Systems administration topics such as maintaining large numbers
>      of machines and disaster recovery
>    * Programming topics such as software engineering practices and
>      test driven development
>    * Free Software and Free Culture topics, including licencing and
>      Free and Open approaches outside software
>    * Free Software usage topics, including home, IT, education,
>      manufacturing, research and government usage.
>
> Most presentations and tutorials will be technical in nature, but

>    * Presentation -  45 minutes

> conference presentation.  These form the bulk of the available
> conference slots.
>
> Tutorials are either 1 hour and 45 minutes, or 3 hours and 30 minutes
> in length, and work best when they are interactive or hands-on in
> nature.  Tutorials are expected to have a specific learning outcome for
> attendees.
>
> To increase the number of people that can view your talk, LCA2010 may
> video the talks and make them publicly available after LCA2010. When
> submitting your proposal you will be asked whether materials relating
> to your paper can be released under a Creative Commons ShareALike
