The online lightning session of the international conference for free and open source software developers and users, the Linux Vacation / Eastern Europe, will take place on December 19, 2020. The event offers a place for free software enthusiasts and professionals to meet and exchange ideas in a friendly informal setting at the biggest FOSS event in Belarus.

The conference beginning time is 15:15, Minsk time (which is UTC/GMT+3, i.e. same as 12:15 GMT). The conference will use Jitsi Meet platform, so any contemporary web browser will be enough to participate. The exact link to join the conference – https://peregovorka.by/lvee.

After this, there will be a lightning talks session. Registration of lightning talks topics is not necessary, but you can write yourself down on the corresponding wiki page (this will simplify us managing the query of lightning speakers online).

LVEE is organized by the Minsk Linux Users Group with the help of the active members of the open source community from around the country. The official languages of the conference are Russian, Belarusian and English; presentations can be in any of these languages.

24 August is the deadline for the registration and abstracts submission.

The conference format includes oral presentations and lightning talks, round table and panel discussions, workshops and hacking sprints.

The presentation materials of LVEE will be published in two steps. The abstracts will be put online before the conference, with multimedia materials (slides and video of presentations) following later on. The printed proceedings of LVEE to be published summer 2018 will include abstracts from both winter and summer conferences.

The presentation topics are normally focused on the design, development, and maintenance of free software, adoption and administration of FOSS-based solutions, making business based on open technologies, licensing, legal and policy issues. The conference covers a wide range of platforms, from workstations and servers to embedded systems and mobile devices.

Participation in LVEE 2020 Online Edition is free.
