submitting a proposal :).

To: Claudia  Rauch <rauch at kde.org>

Dear Claudia Rauch,

since you contributed in the past to LinuxTag, we'd like to update you
about this year's event scheduled for May 8 - 10, 2014 in Berlin,
Germany . We stay in Germany's capital, but a lot of other exiting
things change: First of all, we team up with droidcon , the world's
larges independent summit for Android developer and re:publica , one
of the world’s most important festivals for the digital society. We
also move the venue right into the heart of Berlin, to an industrial
landmark, a loungy former railway station in Berlin's Kreuzberg

Behind the scenes we've taken over the organization of the whole event
and are thus much more flexible for special arrangements . LinuxTag
Association still organizes the program in a non-for-profit way and
depends thus on support from sponsors . You could help LinuxTag by
sending us appropriate contacts from your marketing or recruiting
departments to sponsoring at linuxtag.org , if this is feasible. Your
help is highly appreciated.

Our Call for Papers is open as in previous years at Virtual Conference
Center, https://vcc.linuxtag.org/

and is waiting for your proposals until Feburary 7, 2014. Our program
committee decided to focus the conference on nine main topics. Click
on the links to find out about the holistic idea behind the subjects
originating from the day-to-day experiences of Linux and Open Source
users, administrators, and developers,

Find out: Tracing, troubleshooting, and logging
Protect yourself: Security after Snowden
Fancy a game? Linux' new steps into entertainment
Make it so: Configuration management and software deployment
Roll your own: Bring back your servers home
Extensible Attic: Deal with vast amounts of data
Pimp the Web: Speed up your apps and improve user experience
Go agile: Small steps for your code, but a giant leap for Users
OpenStack: One IaaS platform for all needs

We appreciate any proposals and ask you to relay this message to
friends, team members, or co-workers . Apart from the main topics, we
also gladly accept proposals for other subjects . Additionally, for
the first time we have also the opportunity to have more informal
lectures, workshops, or mini barcamps in the evening, since we may use
the venue until late.

We're also looking for session chairs , who support reviewing
proposals, and moderators/crew members who help us during the
conference. If you are interested, drop us a note at
conference at linuxtag.org .

Don't hestitate to ask if you have questions. Suggest ideas to improve LinuxTag.

On behalf of the conference team,
Tobias Paepke and Nils Magnus
