Subject: Ohio LinuxFest 2015 Call for Presentations

The 2015 Ohio LinuxFest is looking for presentations on Friday and
Saturday, October 2 and 3.  Please visit the CFP page
<https://ohiolinux.org/CFP> for full details about submitting a
proposal.  The deadline is Friday, July 17, but the sooner you can
submit a talk, the better.

Started in 2003, the Ohio LinuxFest <https://ohiolinux.org/> is an
annual grassroots conference in Columbus, Ohio dedicated to open
access for all.  Presentations relating to any free and open source
software, not just Linux, are welcome.  Areas where we've had talks in
the past include networking, system administration, development, and
community building.

Our audience consists of people at all skill levels.  Prior speaking
experience is a plus, although we do try to provide opportunities for
first-time speakers.  If you have any questions, please contact us at
<speakers@ohiolinux.org>.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Vance Kochenderfer
Speaker Chair, 2015 Ohio LinuxFest
