LinuxTag is the most important place for Linux and open source software in Europe. The 18th LinuxTag will take place on 23. - 26. May 2012 - for the sixth time at the Berlin Fairgrounds - and presents all the latest news and information for professional users, decision makers, developers, beginners and the Linux community. LinuxTag is organized by the LinuxTag Association in partnership with Messe Berlin GmbH.

During four days visitors of the fair and the congress can experience the open-source-trends. Collaboration and interesting business models are focused on under the slogan “Open minds create effective solutions”. The main topics include innovative Android projects and enterprise storage with a special perspective on the SSD drive as well as tools and methods of system management, such as monitoring and configuration management. 

Many open source projects will present their free software. Special events such as the hacking contest, the Kernel-Kwestioning with many Linux developers, Key-Signing-Parties, LPI exams or numerous workshops complete the program. 

Proposals for the conference in line with the call-for-papers can be submitted until 29. January 2012. 

LinuxTag 2012 is over - see you next year!

A big thank you to the visitors, exhibiting projects, commercial exhibitors, numerous speakers, invaluable helpers and our great sponsors. You made the 18th LinuxTag a success!
