 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

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

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!
