As approved in last board's meeting [0], CfP is extended until two weeks
before the conference, or until we fill all the slots (whichever happens
first). Please submit your talk proposals early!

Last two years we had lots of talks about new and fresh development and
we prioritized those over other kind of talks, as they had more
potential for discussions and hallway track. However, this year that
doesn't make too much sense, so we encourage our community to submit any
talk related to open-source graphics stack, including those that focus
on project status updates.
