=== 'No pressure' policy ===
+
'''NOTE''' that you must be a conference delegate in order to attend the BoF Sessions.
The Open Radio Miniconf is a low-pressure event, and we strongly encourage anyone who has an idea for an radio-related talk to submit a proposal even if you've never presented at a conference before. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may otherwise not consider submitting a proposal.
+
  
=== Commitment to Diversity ===
+
==BoFs Recurring on Multiple Days==
We are especially keen to present a diverse range of experiences and voices, and actively encourage women and people from other groups that are frequently under-represented at tech events to submit a proposal. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may fit with this objective.
+
  
=== Suggested Presentation Topics ===
+
=== Running BoF ===
  
Any topic which is related to both radio and open source technologies is considered on-topic for the Open Radio Miniconf.
+

Some ideas include:

=== Martial Arts BoF ===
  
* Hardware for SDR
+

* Software for SDR
+
* Protocols over the air
+
* Digital voice
+
* Understandning data modes
+
* Encoding and Decoding data
+
* Logging data or voice
+
* Positioning
+
* Radio direction finding
+
* Here's a cool thing I did with my SDR
+
* Take a look at my new modem for digital modes
+
* Simple data links with cheap radio chips
+
  
=== Presentation Format ===
+
==Evening BoFs at LCA Venue ==
Presentations will be 'lightning talks' session with multiple 5-15 minute mini-presentations. Ideally we would like to see proposals for longer lightning talks, you can also just present on the day (this is a very low-pressure way to ease yourself into presenting, so please have a think in advance about what you'd like to present).
+
  
=== Need some help? ===
+
=== Monday 12th January 2015 ===
If you have an idea (or the beginning of an idea) for a presentation for the Open Radio Miniconf, we'd be very happy to talk it through with you to help you develop it further. Email Kim VK5FJ at vk5fj@wia.org.au or ping him at @vk5fj on Twitter to start the conversation.

To help ensure that presentations comply with the Code of Conduct, we require presenters to submit a copy of their presentation/slide deck for review by Monday 5th January, 2015 (one week prior to the start of LCA).

=== Presenter Responsibilities ===
+
=== Thursday 15th January 2015 ===
Presenters at the Open Radio Miniconf must be registered attendees of the main LCA2015 conference. Presenters are responsible for their own conference registration, travel, and accommodation costs. The LCA2015 committee has made available a small number of miniconf-only passes that we will be using to enable Amateur Radio enthusiasts to present who would not otherwise be able to attend.

=== Aims ===
+
 
+
This will be the second Open Radio Miniconf, this time part build-a-thon, part lightning talks.
+
 
+
There are three specific aims for this coming LCA, the three layers;
+
 
+
1) Build an understanding of radio and build an SDR transceiver to cover an ISM band and the HAM HF bands.
+
 
+
2) Build an understanding of the software required to Rx and Tx
+
 
+
3) Encourage software developers to study existing over the air protocols and start to design new ones.
+
 
+
That might not sound like a lot, but we still have a big challenge to complete the second goal. The third is obviously ongoing and we hope to be able to help facilitate new works on the ISM and HAM bands.
+
 
+
Mark VK5QI has decided that his experience with the [http://www.norcalqrp.org/files/Tayloe_mixer_x3a.pdf Tayloe mixer] with [http://www.qsl.net/zl1wtt/I&Q.htm  I&Q] as used in the SoftRocks is firm ground on which to build. He has been inspired by [http://nt7s.com/2014/06/a-prototype-for-a-si5351-based-ssb-rig/ some new SSB project by NT7S], using a newly available DDS, the multiple output [https://www.adafruit.com/search?q=SI5351&b=1 SI5351]. Completing the picture, the controller is the well known [http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardNano Arduino], designed by Massimo Banzi (check the recent [http://soldersmoke.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/soldersmoke-podcast-165-arduinos.html soldersmoke podcast #165]).
+
 
+
So moving forward the second prototype is currently on the workbend at Marks QTH. The software stack, while complex can be simplified to using existing applications like [http://w1hkj.com/Fldigi.html FLDIGI] or building the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Radio GNU Radio][http://gnuradio.squarespace.com/ stack].
+
 
+
Following on the the how in the now, we need to look forward. Thinking about the existing protocols, the current ways of encoding data on the wire and over the air, we are aiming to approach the design of new over the air protocols.
+
 
+
We are currently working through the materials for the build-a-thon. Once we are happy with them we will update this page and put an announcement here.
