===================================================
 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 the speakers in the talks are all people
that 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, tittle of
the event, description, language, and any other information that might
be useful.

We highly recommend you to send your proposal before January 20th,
when we will start evaluating submissions. We might be able to
accept proposals after that date, but it will be subject to space
availability. We will try to get some sponsorship to help with speakers'
travel expenses. We can't promise anything for now, but we will keep you
informed.

We hope to see you in Barcelona!
