Proposal Selection Update!
August 22, 2014

We know that all of the all of you who submitted presentation proposals are waiting on the edges of your seats to know if you’ve been selected. Rest assured that we have ranked all 70 submissions and we will be notifying the selected speakers in the next few days.

The reason for the delay is that we have so many great proposals that we’re trying to add extra rooms to the conference so we can have twice as many presentations. Depending on availability, this could mean over 50 presentations, plus our great keynote speaker and a block of time set aside for lightning talks.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, either by emailing participate@seagl.org or visting us on IRC on Freenode in #seagl.

The 2014 Seattle GNU/Linux Conference is scheduled for October 24th and 25th at Seattle Central College (Maps).

SeaGL is a grassroots technical conference dedicated to spreading awareness and knowledge about the GNU/Linux community and free/libre/open-source software/hardware. Our goal for SeaGL is to produce an event which is as enjoyable and informative for those who spend their days maintaining hundreds of servers as it is for a student who has only just started exploring technology options. SeaGL's first year was 2013.

The cost of attendance is free.

Attendee Registration will not require the use of non-free software.


We will have a small hall available for exhibitors. Free tables will be available for free/libre/open-source software/hardware and Non-Profit organizations, and there are several sponsorship levels for everyone else. If your organization would like an exhibit table at SeaGL, please send an email to sponsor@seagl.org for our vendor prospectus.

Exhibitor space is limited, please contact us right away if you are interested in a table.


We can't do what we need to do without the support of the community. If you would like to offer financial support but don't need an exhibit table, please send an email to sponsor@seagl.org.
