**EuroBSDcon 2021: Vienna, Austria**

The Call for Talk and presentation proposals for EuroBSDCon 2021 is now 

EuroBSDcon is the European technical conference for users and developers 
of BSD-based systems. The conference is scheduled to take place 
September 16-19 2021 in Vienna, Austria or as an all-online event if 
COVID-19 developments dictate. The tutorials will be held on Thursday 
and Friday to registered participants and the talks are presented to 
conference attendees on Saturday and Sunday.

The Call for Talk and Presentation proposals period will close on May 
26th, 2021.  Prospective speakers will be notified of acceptance or 
otherwise by June 1st, 2021.

**Call for Talk and Presentation Proposals (CFP)**

The EuroBSDcon program committee is inviting BSD developers and users to 
submit innovative and original talk proposals not previously presented 
at other European conferences. Topics of interest to the conference 
include, but are not limited to applications, architecture, 
implementation, performance and security of BSD-based operating systems, 
as well as topics concerning the economic or organisational aspects of 
BSD use. Presentations are expected to be 45 minutes and are to be 
delivered in English.

**Call for Tutorial Proposals**

The EuroBSDcon program committee is also inviting qualified 
practitioners in their field to submit proposals for half or full day 
tutorials on topics relevant to development, implementation and use of 
BSD-based systems.

Half-day tutorials are expected to be 2.5 to 3 hours and full-day 
tutorials 5 to 6 hours. The tutorials and talks are to be held in 


Proposals should be sent through the registration system at 

Proposals should contain a short and concise text description in about 
100 words as well as a short speaker bio.

Accepted papers and presentations will be published on the conference 
web site as soon as feasible during or after the conference. We 
encourage submitters to consider writing up a formal paper for this 
purpose in addition to making a presentation.

While we urge prospective speakers to seek funding from employers or 
other benevolent sources, the conference does have a budget for covering 
reasonable travel and accommodation expenses for speakers, with 
accommodation to the extent possible provided at the primary speaker 
hotel (see the Travel page on the conference website). Speakers who will 
be applying for travel funding should also submit an estimate of 
expected travel expenses. Please see the Speaker Reimbursement Policy 
page at https://eurobsdconfoundation.org/speaker-reimbursement-policy/ 
for details.

Please also note that due to visa issues in the past, we would like to 
know as early as possible of any visa requirements for speakers. Please 
check the Austrian Visa Application Requirements site at 
https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/austria-visa/ for guidance.

NOTE: If conditions dictate that the conference move to an all-online 
format, further instructions on how to access the conference for both 
speakers and attendees will be forwarded by email and posted on the 
conference website. As such we’re especially interested in proposals 
that would work well in a virtual format, such as panel discussions. 
Please also include your timezone and expected available times with your 
proposals. Due to known and unknown unknowns, the format of the 
conference has not yet been decided at this writing. If the format of 
the conference, on-site versus online has consequences for your ability 
to present, please let us know in the notes on your submission.

While the registration system offers the option of adding a commercial 
and/or avatar to your proposal this is not expected (or supported at the
