This event is covered by the FLOSSUK Code of Conduct

FLOSS UK Council are now accepting submissions for presentations and workshops for our main annual conference event. In recent years we have evolved into the UK’s primary support organisation for Free/Libre Open Source Systems (FLOSS) supporting Free and Open Technology.

The Spring Conference is the UK’s longest running event supporting systems and network administrators. But as FLOSS UK has evolved to support open networks, software, hardware and data so our primary conference has become open to submissions on these areas.

If you would like to offer a forum or half-day workshop that might interest our target audience, please submit a proposal visit the Call for Papers page for details.

All submissions are judged using a ‘blind’ process. Please avoid any identifying information in the body of your proposal.

If you have a novel solution to a problem, experience of a particular application or hardware platform, tips and tricks for fellow open source delegates, or a favourite tool you could talk about, use of open data, please submit a paper for consideration by the programme committee.

There will be a prize for the best conference talk. Bursaries may be made available for accepted speakers who are unable to afford travel costs, subject to Council approval with all bursaries being fixed in advance. All accepted speakers receive a complimentary Conference place and a ticket for the conference dinner.

We are also seeking lightning talks for the event – please contact us if you have something you want to schedule in the programme – Lightning Talk speakers who make no other presentation are not eligible for free conference places or dinner.

If you are interested in sponsoring the Conference, please see our list of Sponsorship Opportunities.
