Call for participation: lightning talks and stands

We now invite proposals for lightning talks and stands.

There is still time to submit main track presentations. The deadline for proposing developer rooms has now passed. Please see our previous call for participation for more information on submitting main track proposals.

Lightning talks

Proposals for lightning talks should be submitted using Pentabarf:

Please be sure to select "lightning talks" in the "track" field.
