Bringing people together: The Mini-DebConf Bucharest
Feb 8, 2015: Call for proposals
On the weekend of May 16th and 17th, Bucharest will host a Mini DebConf with both talks and social events, to which everyone in Debian is invited but the speakers in the talks are all people who identify themselves as female. We consider this important to:
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 couldn't make it in time to Bucharest, you can still follow the talks, thanks to the work done by the Romanian Linux User Group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDEbtLarAw0.
The University Politehnica of Bucharest has agreed to host us for this MiniDebConf. It will take place in the recently built library

We have assembled a very interesting set of talks, appealing both to newcomers and to old time Debian Developers, with well known speakers as well as speakers that will be given their first talk outside of their local LUG. It promisses to be a very exciting weekend!
On Sunday, there will be time for people to present short talks (5 minutes or less) about any subject they want. If you want to present your a lightning talk, please add it to the wiki.
