About FUDCon Phnom Penh
FUDCon is the Fedora Users and Developers Conference, a major free software event held in various regions around the world, usually annually per region. FUDCon is a combination of sessions, talks, workshops, and hackfests in which project participants can work on specific initiatives. FUDCon is always free to attend for anyone. For 2016, the FUDCon for the APAC region will be in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It will be held at Norton University (NU) Phnom Penh from 04. to 06. November 2016. The event happens synchronized with the BarCamp Phnom Penh/ASEAN, the biggest technology-oriented event in Cambodia and one of the biggest in the region with 4,000 registered visitors.
We looking for…
FUDCon APAC 2016 now searches for contributions in form of talks, hackfests, workshops and hands-on events. This year’s edition will be more user-oriented. Therefore, we are looking for articles that describe what you can do with free software and Fedora in particular. We also want hands-on, how-to, “begin/start” particular things in or with Fedora and/or Free Software. We welcome contributions that help users migrate to Free Software, make their first steps in a particular programming language, or using and contributing to Fedora. We also look for contributions that show exciting developments in the Free Software and Fedora world. Additionally, there will be one day with slots for things that could be improved in Fedora or in Fedora APAC in particular.
As FUDCon is co-located with other events and has an exhibition area, Fedora should be also part of this. We would like to have not just a static booth, and would like if speakers also submit short presentations to be held in the exhibition area.
Submission and registration
You can submit your ideas for talks, workshops, and hackfests to the following form.
As FUDCon is always free to attend for anyone, you can register with this form. An important note: the budget for travel sponsorship is limited and we cannot sponsor everybody. There will be a selection process for travel sponsorship. For people who submit papers, please use the registration form as well (as it gives us different information than for submissions).
The deadline for submissions will be the 25 of September 2016. speakers will be informed until 5 of October 2016.
We hope to see you there at FUDCon Phnom Penh 2016!
