> TECHNICAL TALKS
>
> A good technical talk should not just report on what has happened over
> the last year; it should present a concrete problem and how it impacts
> the user and/or developer community. Whenever applicable, it should
> focus on the work that needs to be done or the difficulties that haven't
> yet
> been solved. Summarizing recent developments is okay but it should
> not be more than a small portion of the overall talk.
>
> END-USER TALKS
>
> One of the big challenges as developers is to know what, where and how
> people actually use our software. We will reserve a few slots for end
> users talking about their deployment challenges and achievements.
>
> If you are using KVM in production you are encouraged submit a speaking
> proposal. Simply mark it as an end-user talk. As an end user, this is a
> unique opportunity to get your input to developers.
>
> HANDS-ON / BOF SESSIONS
>
> We will reserve some time for people to get together and discuss
> strategic decisions as well as other topics that are best solved within
> smaller groups. This time can also be used for hands-on hacking
> sessions if you have concrete code problems to solve.
>
> These sessions will be announced during the event. If you are interested
> in organizing such a session, please add it to the list at
>
> http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/KVM_Forum_2014_BOF
>
> Let people you think might be interested know about it, and encourage
> them to add their names to the wiki page as well. Please try to
> add your ideas to the list before KVM Forum starts.
>
> PANEL DISCUSSIONS
>
> If you are proposing a panel discussion, please make sure that you list
> all of
> your potential panelists in your abstract. We will request full
> biographies
> if a panel is accepted.
