[Xen-users] 2017 Xen Project Developer and Design Summit: CfP open from now to April 14, Event is held July 11-13, 2017 in Budapest

Dear Community Members, 

I am excited to announce that registration and the call for proposals is open 
for Xen Project Developer and Design Summit 2017, which will be held in 
Budapest, Hungary from July 11-13, 2017. The Xen Project Developer and Design 
Summit combines the formats of Xen Project Developer Summits with Xen Project 
Hackathons, and brings together the Xen Project’s community. We will aim to 
have talks in the mornings and smaller interactive design and problem solving 
sessions in the afternoon. 

Note that the CfP period is quite short: if you need extra time, or you 
otherwise have difficulties with the CfP please contact me via 

Submit a Talk

Several formats are being accepted for speaking proposals, including: 

* Presentations and Panels: these are presentations and panels as we always had 
them at Developer Summits in the past
* Interactive design and problem solving sessions. These sessions can be 
submitted as part of the CFP, but we will reserve a number of design sessions 
to be allocated during the event. Proposers of design sessions are expected to 
host and moderate design sessions following the format we have used at Xen 
Project Hackathons. If you have not participated in these in the past, check 
out past event reports from 2016 
and 2013 

Never talked at a conference before? Don’t worry! We encourage new speakers to 
submit for our events and have plenty of resources to help you prepare for your
