Want to speak at the 2013 SouthEast LinuxFest? You're in the right place! Simply fill out the form below to submit your talk to SELF. Due to the volume of submissions we get, simply filling out this form does not guarantee you a speaking slot. We will do our best to determine all speaking slots no later than April 10th. To ensure your submission is fully considered, please have it in by April 8th.

Please note that by applying to speak, you agree to our speaker release, as we release video and audio of each speaker's presentation. Only one modification to the license will be accepted, and that is the use of cc-by-nd (no derivatives) instead of cc-by for the license. If this is something you want to do, you must tell us that at the appropriate place in the form below. If you use slides, images, video, or other collateral during your presentation, you must provide the SouthEast LinuxFest with a copy of it under the same license that you agreed upon in the speaker release so we can produce the best possible audio and video.

This year we are spreading content out more over the three days. Most talks are on Saturday June 8th. We will however have additional talks on Friday June 7th and Sunday June 9th early. Exact volume depends on A/V availability and affiliate events. If one of these days does not work for you, please mention that in the form.

Some particular areas we're really looking for talks this year include desktop linux, gimp, inkscape, ruby, python, perl, java, security, and bash. That being said, please don't be discouraged from submitting a talk outside of those things listed. We will continue to look for, welcome, encourage, and accept talks pertaining to enterprise, BSD, and all things FOSS.

There are no restrictions on the amount of RFPs you may submit. If you feel like you have multiple good talks you can deliver then submit this form multiple times.

There are several benefits that come with being a speaker for SELF. SELF treats its approved speakers to a private speaker dinner or reception. If we elect to go with a dinner, your meal can be selected below. This will be held on the evening of Friday, June 7th at an undisclosed location at the hotel. You will also be provided with a t-shirt, lunch on Saturday, June 8th, as well as drink tickets for use at the pre-party and party.

(After you submit your RFP, scroll back to the top and it should thank you for your submission. We will also reply via email confirming receipt of your RFP.)
