About

WineConf is the Wine Project's annual conference, where members of the Wine community, the broader Free Software community and interested users meet up over food and beverages. We traditionally also have a number of talks by attendees, as well as some formal and informal discussions about anything vaguely Wine related.

Programme

Aric Stewart has volunteered to be responsible for recruiting conference speakers and scheduling talks this year. If you have a presentation you would like to give at this years' WineConf, please propose the talk either on the wineconf@winehq.org mailing list or by contacting Aric directly.

General Guidelines

  • Please provide an indication of the length of your talk. We're aiming for approximately 40 minute slots, with 15–20 minutes for the talks themselves, and an approximately equal amount of time for questions and discussion afterwards. Shorter talks are generally not an issue; longer talks may be possible depending on the contents of the talk and the rest of the schedule.
  • Topics should obviously be of interest to the other attendees, i.e., the broader Wine community, but note that that doesn't imply the talk has to be about Wine itself.
  • If you have a preferred time and date for your talk please indicate that to Aric when submitting your talk. We will try to make it work as best we can.
