Registration, CfP for openSUSE Conference 2019 Open

openSUSE is pleased to announce that registration and the call for papers for the openSUSE Conference 2019 (oSC19), which takes place in Nuremberg, Germany, are open.

The dates for this year’s conference will be May 24 through May 26 once again at the Z-Bau. Submission for the call for papers will be open until Feb 3. Registration for the conference is open until the day oSC19 begins.

Presentations can be submitted in one of the following formats:

  • Lightning Talks (15 mins)
  • Short Talks (30 mins)
  • Normal Talks (45 mins)
  • Long Workshop (3 hours)
  • Short Workshop (90 mins)

The tracks listed for the conference are:

  • openSUSE
  • Open Source Software
  • Cloud and Containers
  • Embedded Systems
  • Desktop and Applications

While these tracks might be refined to better categorize or consolidate topics, people should submit proposals even if they don’t think it fits into one of the tracks.

A Program Committee will evaluate the proposals based on the submitted abstracts and the accepted proposals will be announced mid February.

Volunteers who would like to participate on the Program Committee or the Organizing Team for the conference should email ddemaio (@)

I was personally disappointed when I was this year at oSC18 in Prague. Lack of attendances in sessions and no diversity in content were a pity for such a great venue. I hope the next edition might build and improve upon that.

Hey @iosifidis thanks for sharing this. I have applied with a lightning talk :slight_smile:


I will be there too! Thanks for sharing @iosifidis. See you there :slight_smile:

@silva.arapi I saw your application. I reviewed them all by the way.

For you who will join us, please book your accommodation. This is from the mailing list, from Doug.

Reminders: There is an event in Nuremberg happening at the same time as oSC19 that will be highly attended by opticians. The optician event was organized after we already had the contracted dates for the location of oSC19. The amount of opticians attending their event may cause the price of the hotel to increase. Please consider booking your hotel for oSC19 ASAP. The prices of hotels in Furth and Erlangen (cities nearby) don’t appear to have an increase in price; same with airbnb prices.
