Els dies 15 i 16 de març de 2014 es celebrarà a Barcelona, impulsat per Debian Women, la BCN 2014 MiniDebConf, conferència oberta a tothom però exclusivament amb ponents que s’identifiquin com del sexe femení.
Amb això s’intenta dues coses: la difusió de Debian i la seva filosofia i, simultàniament, la promoció de la participació de les persones que s’identifiquen com del sexe femení a les comunitats de programari lliure.
A continuació reprodueixo el Call for Proposals (CfP) original que podeu trobar al Wiki del projecte Debian Women, el qual agrairem que escampeu i feu arribar a qualsevol comunitat, grup, associació o persones que puguin estar interessades en participar:
MiniDebConf 2014 Barcelona Call for Proposals
Debian Women is proud to announce that it will hold a MiniDebConf in Barcelona on 15-16 March 2014, where Debian enthusiasts from far and wide will gather to talk about the latest Debian changes and the Debian community, as well as to meet new and old friends.
We want to have a MiniDebConf with both talks and social events, to which everyone in Debian is invited but where the speakers in the talks are all people who identify themselves as female. We consider this important to:
* Encourage women who haven't yet given their first DebConf talk
* Provide role models for women who are interested in contributing
* Debunk the myth that there are not enough women who can give
talks in DebConf
The idea behind the conference is not to talk about women in free software, or women in Debian, but rather to make discussion about Debian subjects more inclusive for women. If you agree with this
goal, spread the word. Forward this call for potential speakers and help us make this event a great success!
Debian Women invites submissions of proposals for papers, presentations, discussion sessions and tutorials for the event. Submissions are not limited to traditional talks: you could propose a performance, an art installation, a debate or anything else. All talks are welcome, whether newbie or very advanced level. Regular sessions will be 45 minutes long, including time for questions, with a 15 minute break between events.
If you have one or more proposals, please send it to email@example.com. Don't forget to include in your message: your name or nick, the title of the event, description, language, and any other information that might be useful. We will try to get some sponsorship to help with speakers' travel expenses.
Please submit your proposal(s) before the 31st of January so that we can start the evaluation process and build the conference program. We might continue to receive proposals after date if there is still free space in the schedule.
We hope to see you in Barcelona!
