Hi all!

The Linux Plumbers Conference is being held September 9th through the
11th in Lisbon Portugal this year. It's been a long time since Plumbers
had systemd representatives and as it is in Europe this year, we are
hoping to get some again.

Linux Plumbers attracts core developers from the Linux Kernel,
Networking, Databases, tool-chains, media, and more. The purpose of
Plumbers is to get the developers of projects that interact but the
developers of those projects do not interact due to being in different
networking ecosystems. Getting all these developers under one roof is
unique to Plumbers and key for having projects work better together.

Linux Plumbers is about getting things done, and not about presenting
what you have been working on. The Microconferences are organized to
address issues of the day where the best solutions comes from face to
face discussions. The only slides at a Microconference should just
bring everyone up to speed on the problem at hand, or perhaps a
proposed solution. Then a discussion should follow to discuss the
various methods to solve the problems or how to create new features.

Plumbers also has a "Refereed Track" which is more like a standard
presentation, along side the Microconferences. The Refereed Track focus
is on up and coming work, and what will become the discussions of

All Microconferences and the Refereed Track are recorded. The
Microconferences will have two cameras and three microphones as they
are more focused for discussion than presentation.

If you haven't been to Plumbers before, I highly recommend that you
come and participate this year. Several people have said that Plumbers
is the most productive conference of the year.

Feel free to submit a Refereed Track, or better yet, if you can get a
set of systemd developers to attend, perhaps you can submit your own


If you have any questions, feel free to reach to myself or the Linux
