Please note that by applying to speak, you agree to our speaker release ( http://www.southeastlinuxfest.org/pdfs/speaker-release.pdf ), as we release video and audio of each speaker's presentation. Only one modification to the license will be accepted, and that is the use of cc-by-nd (no derivatives) instead of cc-by for the license. If this is something you want to do, you must tell us that at the appropriate place in the form below. If you use slides, images, video, or other collateral during your presentation, you must provide the SouthEast LinuxFest with a copy of it under the same license that you agreed upon in the speaker release so we can produce the best possible audio and video.
This year we are spreading content out more over the three days. Most talks are on Saturday June 21st. We will however have additional talks on Friday June 20th and Sunday June 22nd early. Exact volume depends on A/V availability and affiliate events. If one of these days does not work for you, please mention that in the form.
Some particular areas we're really looking for talks this year include desktop linux, gimp, inkscape, ruby, python, perl, java, security, drupal, wordpress, and bash. That being said, please don't be discouraged from submitting a talk outside of those things listed. We will continue to look for, welcome, encourage, and accept talks pertaining to enterprise, BSD, and all things FOSS.
There are no restrictions on the amount of RFPs you may submit. If you feel like you have multiple good talks you can deliver then submit this form multiple times.
There are several benefits that come with being a speaker for SELF. SELF treats its approved speakers to a private speaker dinner or reception. If we elect to go with a dinner, your meal can be selected below. This will be held on the evening of Friday, June 7th at an undisclosed location at the hotel. You will also be provided with a t-shirt, lunch on Saturday, June 21st, as well as drink tickets for use at the pre-party and party.
