All visa letter requests must be submitted no later than two weeks before the event. Any visa letter requests made after the two-week deadline cannot be guaranteed.

We also ask that you please note the following:

  • Provision of a visa letter by The Linux Foundation does not guarantee visa approval as final approval is made at the sole discretion of the government of the event’s host country.
  • The Linux Foundation strongly recommends requesting a visa letter at your earliest possible convenience and contacting your local Embassy/Consulate with any visa questions you may have.
  • The Linux Foundation processes most visa letter requests in (3) business days.

Automotive Grade Linux All Member Meeting Summer 2024  will occur at the Doubletree Berlin Ku’Damm,  Los-Angeles-Platz 1, 10789 Berlin, Germany. Please visit our Venue & Travel page for more information.

Rooms will likely sell out before the room block close date of June 6, and we encourage you to book early to secure a room at the conference rate.

The schedule will be announced on Wednesday, May 22, and posted on our website using Sched.com. You will receive an email from Sched.com asking you to create your account; please upload your bio and photo.

If you have a conflict with the timing of your talk, find that it conflicts with the content of another session, or are having problems uploading your bio and photo, please contact Jennifer Crowley.

Please note the following technical requirements:

  • All speakers must supply their computers and adapters to use during their talk.
  • Presentation slides should be formatted in 16:9  
  • A conference-branded presentation template can be downloaded here; use of the template is optional.
  • The room will include a screen, projector, and (2) microphones.
  • We will make every effort to accommodate additional AV needs; however, final approval for additional AV requests will be made on a case-by-case basis. 
  • AV requests must be received by Wednesday, June 26

All speakers are required to submit their final presentation slides ahead of the event. In addition to providing a hard copy for accessibility purposes, we find that adding the presentations before the event helps to drive interest in attending the session.

The Linux Foundation, in collaboration with the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), has created an online course designed to teach the viewer about inclusion, diversity, and unconscious bias. We highly recommend all of our speakers watch the course to learn tips/tools to use when speaking to encourage inclusivity in presentations and messaging. 

Please read and abide by our code of conduct, which can be found here. We ask that speakers especially review this code of conduct and are inclusive in the words and imagesused during their presentation.

If you have any other platform, speaker, or schedule-related questions, please contact us at cfp@linuxfoundation.org.
