Linux Plumbers Conference Registration Open
17-19 September 2008
Portland, Oregon USA

General Registration Now Open

We are pleased to announce that general registration for the Linux
Plumbers Conference is now open:

The Linux Plumbers Conference is a working conference.  LPC brings
together the top developers working on the "plumbing" of Linux -
kernel subsystems, core libraries, windowing system, etc. - and gives
them three days to work together on core design problems.  The
conference is organized into several half-day microconferences
focusing on individual subsystems.  Since the microconfs are
co-located, developers can meet face-to-face with experts from other
subsystems to solve problems that span project boundaries.  This kind
of cross-project collaboration usually only happens in the unofficial
"hallway track" at conferences.  LPC makes the hallway track a

Linux Plumbers Conference is limited to 350 attendees to increase
cross-project collaboration.  This year's conference is co-located
with Kernel Summit in Portland, Oregon and begins the day following
Kernel Summit.

The conference is centered around ten microconferences.  The
