FOSS LINKS THE WORLD
The Ohio LinuxFest will be held on September 13-15, 2013 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Hosting authoritative speakers and a large expo, the Ohio LinuxFest welcomes all Free and Open Source Software professionals, enthusiasts, and everyone interested in learning more about Free and Open Source Software.
The Call for Talks for the 2013 Ohio LinuxFest is now open.
We are looking for talks from all skill levels, from beginners to advanced, and from a variety of topics in Free and Open Source Technology.
We're especially looking for talks about non-Linux systems, specialized hardware, networking, telecommunications, open source government, and much more.
Never done this before? We encourage you to apply! We often accept talks based on the knowledge of the speaker, not just experience speaking. You have to start somewhere, why not start with us?
