Linux Users' Group of Davis
Call for Speakers

(Short version)

(View the long version)


The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) is a 501(c)7 not-for-profit whose goals are to advocate and educate the local community on the subjects of Linux and Free/Open-Source Software. We hold regular meetings, installfests, demos, classes and exhibits, and maintain minutes, photos and presentation slides from our previous meetings.

LUGOD is made up of a diverse membership, including those from UC Davis, and many non-university community members from Davis, Sacramento, and the surrounding communities. Members are active on our various mailing lists, and we keep in touch with other local user groups.

What to Expect at a Meeting

  • Attendance: Between 10 and 80 members, depending on the topic and time of year
  • Location: Typically at the Davis Public Library
  • Audio/Visual: Projector and projection screen. Also available upon request: limited Internet access, television/VCR, Linux-based PC or laptop

How to Arrange

LUGOD meets on the third Monday of each month from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. See "Upcoming Meetings" for the current schedule, then contact either or your existing LUGOD contact point to propose your presentation.

Please supply:

  • Your name, organization or project, your position, and biographical info.
  • A short title for your talk
  • A summary blurb, describing your talk
  • The technical level of your talk (See our 'geek-o-meter page' for an idea of the ratings we normally use.)
  • What will you need from us? (A projector is assumed. Will you need a computer? Internet access? A television?)
