BSDCan is an enormously successful grass-roots style conference. It brings together a great mix of *BSD developers and users for a nice blend of both developer-centric and user-centric presentations, food, and activities.
The Call for Papers for 2024 has closed. Please subscribe to our announce mailing list to be notified when the CFP for near year opens.
The talks will have a very strong technical content bias. Proposals of a business development or marketing nature are not appropriate for this venue.
If you are doing something interesting with a BSD operating system, please submit a proposal. Whether you are developing a very complex system using BSD as the foundation, or helping others and have a story to tell about how BSD played a role, we want to hear about your experience. People using BSD as a platform for research are also encouraged to submit a proposal. Possible topics include:
From the BSDCan website, the Archives section will allow you to review the wide variety of past BSDCan presentations as further examples.
Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.

The conference will be primarily an in-person one. We are hoping to offer other ways to participate, but the details have not been worked out, so if you can only present remotely, please indicate this in your submission notes.
Recording of the talks
We have taken video recordings of talks in the past and plan to do so in the future. They are made freely available at no charge and talks from past years may be viewed on YouTube.
NOTE: In order for recording to occur, you must not use the computer located within the podium. i.e. use your own laptop, not the venue-supplied computer.
We hope the following answers a few frequently asked questions.
