Martin Schulze reports:

LinuxTag is Europe's largest exhibition and conference covering Linux and Free Software. It takes place from 5th to 8th of July at the exhibition fair of Stuttgart, Germany. There will be about 70 hours of free conference program, like there was last year. The LinuxTag people again are looking for competent speakers for all areas of Linux and Free Software. Check out their Call for Papers. This year non-LinuxTag people have been invited to join the program committee to select the best and most interesting talks.

Talks may cover any subject around Unix, Linux and Free Software. LinuxTag is looking especially for introductions, new and trailblazing programs, practical use of Linux, concepts of distributions, system administration, programming etc.

Last year Alan Cox was there, admitting "how the LinuxTag office people were even concious this many days in is beyond me." Even Illiad from Userfriendly made a comment: "I'm very much looking forward to the event next year, and I heartily recommend the show to anyone who wants to attend a conference and exhibition that refuses to neglect any of the elements that make our community and industry sector as interesting as they are."
