Call For Papers

Linux 2008 will take place at the Manchester Conference Centre from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th November. The conference will follow a similar pattern to that of previous years, with a choice of two conference streams. We also plan to organise some tutorials on Friday 7th November.

We invite speakers on all aspects of Linux development. The programme will cover a variety of subjects, including kernel and desktop development, tools, applications, networking and security. Any topic likely to be of interest to Linux developers and enthusiasts will be considered.


Abstracts for the main conference or tutorial programme should be accompanied by a short biography, and, ideally, should be about 250-500 words long. Final papers should normally last about 45 minutes, including 10 minutes for questions and answers. If you need more time for your presentation, please tell us when you submit your abstract.

Abstracts should be submitted to the conference organisers electronically via the web site. http://www.ukuug.org/events/linux2008/register.shtml

We shall acknowledge all submissions.
