We want to have a mini-debconf with both talks and social events, to which everyone in Debian is invited but the speakers in the talks are all people
that identify as female.

This idea would help in several ways:

consider this important to:

It is not the idea of the event to talk about women in free software, or
women in debian, but rather talk about Debian subjects.
The idea behind the conference is not to talk about women in free
software, or women in Debian, but rather to make discussion about
Debian subjects more inclusive for women. If you agree with this
goal, spread the word. Forward this call for potential speakers
and help us make this event a great success!

DebianWomen invites submissions of proposals for papers, presentations,
discussion sessions and tutorials for its MiniDebConfWomen conference.
Debian Women invites submissions of proposals for papers,
presentations, discussion sessions and tutorials for the
event. Submissions are not limited to traditional talks: you
could propose a performance, an art installation, a debate or
anything else. All talks are welcome, whether newbie or very
advanced level. Regular sessions will be 45 minutes long,
including time for questions, with a 15 minute break between
events.

Submissions are not limited to traditional talks: you could propose a

If you have one or more proposals, please send it to
proposals@bcn2014.mini.debconf.org. Don't forget to include
in your message: your name or nick, the title of the event,
description, language, and any other information that might
be useful. We will try to get some sponsorship to help with
speakers' travel expenses.
Line 28: Line 52:
This year submission of a formal written paper for the conference
proceedings is again optional, though encouraged. Providing a written
paper in advance means that interested people can attend your session
ready with ideas for discussion, and especially helps those who find
it hard to follow rapid English speech.
Please submit your proposal(s) before the 31st of January so that
we can start the evaluation process and build the conference
program. We might continue to receive proposals after date if
there is still free space in the schedule.

Regular sessions will be 45 minutes long, including time for questions,
with a 15 minute break between events.
We hope to see you in Barcelona!
Line 37: Line 59:
All talks are welcome, both newbie level and very advanced level. We would probably divide them into tracks. For more information, visit http://bcn2014.mini.debconf.org
Line 39: Line 61:
If you have one or more talk proposals, please write us at debian-miniconf@cpl.upc.edu (public list). It doesn't imply a commitment for that talk, but it could give us an idea of what talks could be available.

These are open ideas of things that might be interesting to present. Feel
free to send us new ideas even if you don't plan to give the talk yourself.

 MiniDebConf 2014 Barcelona Call for Proposals
===============================================

Debian Women is proud to announce that it will hold a MiniDebConf
in Barcelona on 15-16 March 2014, where Debian enthusiasts from
far and wide will gather to talk about the latest Debian changes
and the Debian community, as well as to meet new and old friends.

We want to have a MiniDebConf with both talks and social events,
to which everyone in Debian is invited but where the speakers in
the talks are all people who identify themselves as female. We
consider this important to:

 * Encourage women who haven't yet given their first DebConf talk
 * Provide role models for women who are interested in contributing
 * Debunk the myth that there are not enough women who can give 
   talks in DebConf

The idea behind the conference is not to talk about women in free
software, or women in Debian, but rather to make discussion about
Debian subjects more inclusive for women. If you agree with this
goal, spread the word. Forward this call for potential speakers
and help us make this event a great success!

Debian Women invites submissions of proposals for papers,
presentations, discussion sessions and tutorials for the
event. Submissions are not limited to traditional talks: you
could propose a performance, an art installation, a debate or
anything else. All talks are welcome, whether newbie or very
advanced level. Regular sessions will be 45 minutes long,
including time for questions, with a 15 minute break between
events.

If you have one or more proposals, please send it to
proposals@bcn2014.mini.debconf.org.  Don't forget to include
in your message: your name or nick, the title of the event,
description, language, and any other information that might
be useful. We will try to get some sponsorship to help with
speakers' travel expenses.

Please submit your proposal(s) before the 31st of January so that
we can start the evaluation process and build the conference
program. We might continue to receive proposals after date if
there is still free space in the schedule.

We hope to see you in Barcelona!
