Call for content

The Maemo community invites you to participate in the second Maemo Summit in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from October 9th to October 11th 2009. The core themes of the conference will be Fremantle and Harmattan; the forthcoming and future releases of the Maemo platform.

The Maemo community invites talks, lightning presentations and BOFs in three main tracks:

  • Users: Show off something cool that lets people get the most out of their hardware, or present an aspect of the Maemo community where you need help
  • Application developers: Help people get the most out of the Maemo platform, and write great apps
  • Platform developers: You're hacking on the platform and want to show off great low-level hacks, this is the place for you

We are asking for two types of submissions:

  • 30 minute long presentations, BOFs or workgroup sessions.
  • 5 minute long lightning talks.

We invite people to submit a short description of the session they would like to give, including the talk title, intended audience, a short description, a short biographical note and contact details of the presenter(s).

We also welcome proposals for 5 minute lightning talks which will be held each day during the conference.

All submissions should be made on the Maemo wiki at

The submissions received will be reviewed periodically by the content committee starting on July 5th. Sessions approved will be communicated to the speakers and published in a draft schedule asap.

The final deadline for submissions will be September 13th but the sooner you submit your proposal the better chances you will have to get a slot.

The final schedule will be published on the week of September 13th.
