+# Call For Proposals
+
+**2013 X.Org Developers Conference (XDC 2013)**
+ **23-25 September 2013**
+ **Portland, Oregon USA**
+
+The [[2013 X.Org Developers Conference|Events/XDC2013]] is the annual technical meeting for [[X Window System|http://x.org]] and [[Free Desktop|http://freedesktop.org]] developers. The attendees will gather to discuss outstanding technical issues related to X and to plan the direction of the X Window System and its software ecosystem. The event is free of charge and open to the general public.
+
+The XDC 2013 Technical Program Committee (TPC) is requesting proposals for papers and presentations at XDC 2013. While any serious proposal will be gratefully considered, topics of interest to [[X.org|http://x.org]] and [[FreeDesktop.org|http://freedesktop.org]] developers are encouraged. There are three particular types of proposal the TPC is seeking:
+
+ 1. Technical talk abstracts: 250-1000 words describing a presentation to be made at XDC 2013. This can be anything: a work-in-progress talk, a proposal for change, analysis of trends, etc.
+ 1. Informal white papers: 1000+ words on something of interest or relevance to X.org developers, [[FreeDesktop|FreeDesktop]].org developers or the X community at large. These papers will appear in the online conference proceedings of XDC 2013, and are unrefereed (beyond basic checks for legitimacy and relevance). Papers can be refereed if requested in advance.
+ 1. Technical research papers: 2500+ words in a format and style suitable for refereed technical publication. Papers that are judged acceptable by the TPC and its referees will be published in the printed conference proceedings of XDC 2013, available on a print-on-demand basis online.
+XDC 2013 technical presenters will be chosen from the authors of any of these submissions (as well as other presenters invited by the TPC).
+
+Normally, there is time for everyone who wants to present to do so, but one can never tell. As much as possible, presenters will be selected from those who submit before the deadline. We also may be able to offer financial assistance for travel for presenters who could not otherwise afford to attend and who submit before the deadline. Please do submit your proposal in a timely fashion.
+
+**Proposals due:** Thursday 1 August 2013 17:00 UTC
+ **Accepted formats:** PDF and ASCII text.
+ **Notification of acceptance:** Thursday 8 August 2013
+ **E-mail:** board at foundation.x.org
