LSF/MM/BPF: 2024: Call for Proposals

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The annual Linux Storage, Filesystem, Memory Management, and BPF
(LSF/MM/BPF) Summit for 2024 will be held from May 13 to May 15
at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

LSF/MM/BPF is an invitation-only technical workshop to map out
improvements to the Linux storage, filesystem, BPF, and memory
management subsystems that will make their way into the mainline
kernel within the coming years.

LSF/MM/BPF 2024 will be a three day, stand-alone conference with
four subsystem-specific tracks, cross-track discussions, as well
as BoF and hacking sessions:

On behalf of the committee I am issuing a call for agenda proposals
that are suitable for cross-track discussion as well as technical
subjects for the breakout sessions.

If advance notice is required for visa applications then please
point that out in your proposal or request to attend, and submit
the topic as soon as possible.

We are asking that you please let us know you want to be invited
by March 1, 2024. We realize that travel is an ever changing target,
but it helps us to get an idea of possible attendance numbers.
Clearly things can and will change, so consider the request to
attend deadline more about planning and less about concrete plans.

1) Fill out the following Google form to request attendance and
suggest any topics for discussion:

In previous years we have accidentally missed people's attendance
requests because they either did not Cc lsf-pc@ or we simply missed
them in the flurry of emails we get. Our community is large and our
volunteers are busy, filling this out will help us to make sure we
do not miss anybody.

2) Proposals for agenda topics should ideally still be sent to the
following lists to allow for discussion among your peers. This will
help us figure out which topics are important for the agenda:


... and Cc the mailing lists that are relevant for the topic in

         FS:     linux-fsdevel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
         MM:     linux-mm@xxxxxxxxx
         Block:  linux-block@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
         ATA:    linux-ide@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
         SCSI:   linux-scsi@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
         NVMe:   linux-nvme@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
         BPF:    bpf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Please tag your proposal with [LSF/MM/BPF TOPIC] to make it easier
to track. In addition, please make sure to start a new thread for
each topic rather than following up to an existing one. Agenda
topics and attendees will be selected by the program committee,
but the final agenda will be formed by consensus of the attendees
on the day.

3) This year we would also like to try and make sure we are
including new members in the community that the program committee
may not be familiar with. The Google form has an area for people to
add required/optional attendees. Please encourage new members of the
community to submit a request for an invite as well, but additionally
if maintainers or long term community members could add nominees to
the form it would help us make sure that new members get the proper

For discussion leaders, slides and visualizations are encouraged to
outline the subject matter and focus the discussions. Please refrain
from lengthy presentations and talks in order for sessions to be
productive; the sessions are supposed to be interactive, inclusive

We are still looking into the virtual component. We will likely run
something similar to what we did last year, but details on that will
be forthcoming.









4) If you have feedback on last year's meeting that we can use to
improve this year's, please also send that to:


Thank you on behalf of the program committee:
