LinuxFest Northwest (est. 2000), an annual Open Source event co-produced by Bellingham Linux Users Group and the Information Technology department at BTC. LFNW features presentations and exhibits on free and open source topics, as well as Linux distributions & applications, InfoSec, and privacy; something for everyone from the novice to the professional!


LFNW22 will be conducted virtually (and hopefully in a hybrid format). Special thanks to Blindside Networks for providing us a virtual space on BigBlueButton.

Call for Papers

We are now accepting proposals for sessions!

LFNW22: Be Excellent To Each Other (again)!

Please submit your presentation proposals now. We'd like you to emphasize positive collaboration, teaching, in general lifting up the open source community.

We've updated the session types to be a bit more clear, and you'll notice we've left out tracks - we will build tracks out of your submissions, so please collaborate in your own communities if you'd like to build a cohesive track!

The submission period is open October 14, 2021 - January 31, 2022. You have 58 days left!
