Speaker Selection Notes

Here are some notes on speaker selection:

We still don't have a draft of our schedule yet.

The last draft sent around by Ruud (on Aug 17) appears below:

talks outstanding [edit section]

As of morning of August 17, 2011, we have 36 approved talks and 27 rejected. Of these, 2 were MeeGo talks.

As of evening of August 17, 2011, we have:

  • 202 total (including LCE talks)
  • 40 Accepted (including 2 MeeGo talks, 1 keynote, and a lunch wiki BOF)
  • 27 Rejected
  • 7 Waiting List
  • 15 Pending (aka Under Review)
  • 2 off-system talks (MontaVista Automotive talk and Thomas Gleixner)

I don't think Pending includes the "Clarification Needed" one.

On August 17, Tim did the following: Moved to "Accepted":

  • #1382 - What embedded Linux developers should knwo about IPv6
  • #1323 - Thermal Framework for ARM based SOCs
  • #1338 - Build Community Android Distribution and Ensure the Quality
  • #1355 - Remote Processor Messaging

Moved to "Waitlisted":

  • The rest of Ruud's waitlisted talks
    • #1226 - Linux on non-existing SoCs
    • #1331 - Automated Regression Test Environment for Multiple Kernels
    • #1225 - ARM DMA-mapping framework redesign and IOMMU integration
    • #1296 - Integrated Tracing Across Heterogeneous Embedded Hardware with LTTng 2.0 and the Common Trace Format
    • #1326 - Integrating Embedded Linux Systems with PTXdist

  • A few of my own preferences for waitlisted talks
    • #1321 - SOC Power Management - Debugging and Optimization techniques
    • #1343 - Tuning Linux for Embedded Systems: When Less is More

Move to "Clarification Needed":

  • #1386 - Efficient JTAG-baseed Linux Kernel Debugging
    • Is this about an internal hobby project, or more about using jtag?
    • What is likelihood of mainline acceptance of proposed interface?

Meego [edit section]

Tim wrote:

FYI on Meego talks in the CFP:
Please note that 3 meego talks that we approved (set to 'y')
currently have status "New" (talks #1242, #1313, and #1375).
One Meego talk which we intended to waitlist (#1318) (set to 'm')
also has status "New".
I think these are OK - we'll let LC decide the fate of these.
I mention these, because if they go into an LCE track, it
means we have 4 more slots available in ELCE.
2 other meego talks (#1185 and #1255) have status "Rejected"
and "New" respectively.

Number of talks [edit section]

This results in total: 6*2 + 9*3 + 3 keynotes = 39 regular + 3 keynotes

If we have parallel keynotes, and program regular talks parallel to the LC keynotes, we can add 9 or 12 slots. (35-51 slots total)
