  • 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.

Visit our Venue & Travel page for further details.

The schedule will be announced Wednesday, June 12, 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 they are missing from your speaker profile.

Please note your session timing on the agenda as it may differ from what you originally proposed.

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.

To upload slides:

  • Log into your speaker profile through Sched.com 
  • On the top of the page, click “Manage and Promote Your Session”
  • Click “Add Presentation”
  • Click in the “Select a File” box and add the PDF document (note: there is a 50MB size limit)
  • Click “Upload” and your slides will automatically be saved

An optional Powerpoint template is available for download here. Please note, all slides must be formatted in 4:3.

In collaboration with the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), the Linux Foundation 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. Our Code of Conduct is strictly enforced. We ask that speakers especially review this code of conduct and are careful to be inclusive in the words and images used during their presentation.
