We are super excited to announce that the Arch Linux Conference 2020 is going to
be held online on the 10th and 11th of October.
The CFP has been published and everyone is free to submit talks and lightning
talks from today until the 18th of September. If you have other ideas please do
# Pre-recorded talks
All talks should be pre-recorded and sent to the team by the video submission
deadline. You will be notified if the talk has been accepted shortly after the
submission deadline has passed.
# Important Dates
* Conference date: 10th - 11th of October
* Submission deadline: 18th of September
* Video submission deadline: 5th of October
Streaming details are going to be published through September as there is still
some more planning required for this part :)
We are still going to hold regular meetings over mumble and general planning in
#archlinux-conf @ freenode until the conference starts in October. If you want
to get involved and help out please do reach out and join the meeting :)
Cheers from the Conference Team!
Because of COVID-19 I assume most people have had some conference plans
cancelled this year. FroSCon has had an Arch Linux devroom the past years, but
as we are not meeting physically I guess that isn't happening either. Thus I
want to try rally some people and have an online Arch Linux conference/devroom.
There are not any major ambitions really. This can be a few hours an evening, or
a weekend event. We will see what we figure out :)
Some of the ideas I have had so far is as roughly:
* Team Q&A
* team member and the wider community
* Interactive streams
* See how packagers do their work?
* Arch Linux installation speedruns(?)
Feel free to email me offlist, or poke me on other platforms, if you have other
great ideas that could work!
To organize we would need some help and might need some roles filled. This is a
shortlist of the ones I can come up with. But I'm sure there are more tasks and
* Help figuring out streaming
* Planning and handling CFP
There is no requirement to be on the Arch team to contribute. If you think you
have anything to contribute, please do come talk with me! Need every help one
can get :)
Below is a suggested meeting date for interested parties to attend. I'm unsure
if it's going to be mumble or purely text based.
Date of meeting:
4th of August
