Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2022 Call for Presentations/Participation/Lectures

after the "big" Linuxtag event folded, the Chemnitzer Linuxtage are the
largest such event in Germany, typically drawing about 2500-3000
visitors each year.  In 2020, they were forced to fold with something
like a week of advance notice.  In 2021, the event was virtual.  In
2022, this will again be the case.

They have turned the floor plan of the lecture hall building normally
used (the "Orangerie") into a walk-through game that opens up Jitsi
sessions at stands and meeting points and connects to Big Blue Button
sessions in the various lecture rooms.  The hallways are, as it was with
the in-person conference, set with project stands where vendors or free
software projects can present their projects and help users and other
interested people with their problems or their questions.

This would be an opportunity to set up a LilyPond stand, along with
posters, presentations and people manning the stand, without actually
involving traveling to Chemnitz.  Video conference capable hardware is
all that is required, as is a typical web browser.

I'll probably try registering a talk about LilyPond unless someone else
wants to do this: after all, I may not be the most active user nor
developer these days, and there may be other talk topics I might want to

Conference languages are generally German and English, but the main
language tends to be German and that tends to also be the language of
the typical visitors.  In the in-person conferences, there was a lot of
locals present because the entrance fee is negligible at about $10 for
the weekend.  While the virtual format is likely to draw a bit more
international audience, this conference draws a lot of recurring
audience, so the basic visitor setup will likely still end up being
quite German-centric.

The link for the calls for participation/lectures is at
<>.  The deadlines are
early January I think.

While the evening event for active presenters/lecturers/personnel will
be short of the great buffet accompanying the in-person events, one will
likely still meet up afterwards in the virtual space at the lecture hall
and walk the usual tables looking for the usual participants, from the
space of one's private computer.

Anyone interested in promoting LilyPond there?
