GStreamer Conference 2017
21-22 October 2017 · Prague, Czech Republic
The 8th GStreamer Conference will take place
on Saturday and Sunday 21-22 October 2017 at node5 in
Prague, Czech Republic.
This is just before the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE),
but not officially co-hosted with it and at a different venue in Prague.
The GStreamer Conference is a conference for developers, decision-makers,
community members, industry partners, and anyone else interested in the
GStreamer multimedia framework or Open Source and cross-platform multimedia.
Call for Papers
The call for papers is now open and talk proposals can be submitted.
The deadline for talk proposals is Sunday 27 August 2017, 23:59 UTC
The initial submission needs to be only a couple of sentences or paragraphs
describing the talk you want to give and the desired length of your talk
(please allow at least 5 minutes for questions at the end as well).
Talks can be on almost anything multimedia related, ranging from talks about
applications to challenges in the lower levels in the stack or hardware.
Talk slots will have one of the following durations: 20 minutes, 30 minutes,
or 45 minutes, including questions. We will only have a small number of
45-minute slots available, so please consider whether you could also make do
with 30 minutes before asking for a 45-minute slot.
We want to hear from you, what you are working on, what you are using
GStreamer for, what difficulties you have encountered and how you solved them,
what your plans are, what you like, what you dislike, how to improve things.
Please send all proposals to email@example.com.
Showcase or Lightning Talks
There will again be opportunities for short lightning talks for those who
do not wish to present a full talk, but just want to showcase something
they're working on, or present a problem or challenge they are facing or
have solved, and that they think might be interesting for others to hear
Want to submit a ca. 5-minute mini-talk for our lightning talk/showcase event?
Simply send a quick mail to firstname.lastname@example.org above to reserve your slot (subject to availability).
There is no deadline for Lightning Talk submissions, slots will be
allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.
There will again be a social event for registered attendees on Saturday
evening. Details to be confirmed at a later date.
