thinking in enroll as speaker in Fudcon Managua, Maybe you already

We are extending the dates of call for papers of FUDCon Managua 2014.
After de first call, we end up with few people all of them ambassadors
that happen to be in another team like packagers or infra. We count in
the long lasting interest of Jared Smith on LATAM, as participate from
Documentation team. The local team organizing the event feels that this
is not representative of Fedora Project. There is an absence of teams
like design, translation and QA, among others missing teams. Also there
is a lack of topics like Fedora.Next and Cockpit that are relevant at
The official dates are October, 23rd to 25th. Be aware that we have a
short budget and traveling to Latin America is expensive, so we will
have to select people. Don't be surprise if we have to pick only one
people from those offering similar topics.
So, it will be a requisite to have at least one talk, but we expect more
from each person. Beyond talks we have a computer lab for workshop. We
want hand on workshops focus on transferring skills to collaborate to
Fedora Project. We also will provide space for hacking. We will like to
have a productive event, so we will favor people that propose activities
that will produce new collaborators, or get things done. So please
provide a small description of the talks, workshops, hacking that you
propose and include your expected outcome.
