thanks! we'd love to have you working on this if you're up for it.

Please see the Tracks-related information here:
And look at the other tracks here:
Basically, we'd need you to solicit Arts/Media-related proposals from
people who are doing interesting work, maybe pull together people on a
panel/debate/discussion or two, and figure out ordering and a coherent
over-arching theme for the track. You might want to look at the "All
Events" page on https://penta.debconf.org/ to see what arts-related
proposals have been submitted already, since we're past the official
proposal submission deadline.
Good communications with the talks and scheduling teams (here on this
list is fine) will also be critical so that when we're deciding what
proposals to accept and how to schedule them we can make sure the track
comes together. (we're doing this for the first time this year, so any
insight you have to the process, or how it *should* work would be
welcome as well).
Additionally, during debconf, we hope that the track coordinator will
stay on top of the logistics of the track, introduce presenters, keep
things moving and well-paced, and report back to the larger group at the
end of the conference.
Pablo and Michael have started to document what they're pulling together
on individual track pages (Java and Math/Science, respectively). Have a
look at their work to understand what they've done, and feel free to ask
questions here too.

Hopefully, most of the pre-debconf track coordinating work will be done
by the time debcamp starts (though there will of course be exceptions).
Thanks for stepping up for this! If you decide you want to go ahead
with it, please modify the Tracks page with your information, and start
documenting what you've pulled together.
