Can your experience in the Linux world be useful to other professionals? Do you feel the value of getting into the code of the programs you are using? Do you ask yourself often «how this stuff works inside»? Do you spread and design innovative systems and want to share your opinion with hundreds of other insiders? Submit a talk to LinuxLab!

You have time until September, 23 (extended from 16) to submit an abstract to the second edition of LinuxLab that will be held in Florence on December, 3 and 4, 2018.

CFP Description


You can submit proposals on any matter specified in the following topics, or propose new ones, related to the Linux world, for arguments which are not listed. LinuxLab wants to be the all-around Italian conference on Linux. The conference will be organized on two days, each with two parallel tracks. For this edition we have therefore identified four main areas, where we would like speeches to be addressed. The areas are interaction, security, kernel and dev tools. Contributions may be theoretical or practical case studies, cross-topic proposals are welcome.

Here are some of the topics that might be appropriate for each area:


  • GUI
  • After X11 (Compositors, Wayland, Mir, …)
  • Human Machine Interface
  • Linux for the Desktop
  • Linux for Creators (audio, video, text, images, …)
  • Audio


  • Spectre/Meltdown
  • Secure Boot
  • Penetration testing
  • Hacking and Cracking
  • Safe programming


  • File Systems (performances, use cases, capabilities, …)
  • Android (drivers, low power, video stack, …)
  • Linux↔FPGA
  • Realtime / Xenomai
  • µClinux
  • Specialized schedulers
  • Reverse engineering device hw
  • Linux Mobile
  • Automotive
  • Kernel Architecture

Dev tools

  • Virtualization / Containers
  • Wine
  • Windows Subsystem for Linux
  • Valgrind
  • Perf
  • GDB
