FOSDEM Desktops DevRoom 2017
FOSDEM is one of the largest (5,000+ hackers!) gatherings of Free Software contributors in the world and happens each February in Brussels (Belgium, Europe). Once again, one of the tracks will be the Desktops DevRoom (formerly known as “CrossDesktop DevRoom”), which will hostDesktop-related talks.
We are now inviting proposals for talks about Free/Libre/Open-source Software on the topics of Desktop development, Desktop applications and interoperability amongst Desktop Environments. This is a unique opportunity to show novel ideas and developments to a wide technical audience.
Topics accepted include, but are not limited to:
Talks can be very specific, such as the advantages/disadvantages of distributing a desktop application with snap vs flatpak, or as general as using HTML5 technologies to develop native applications.
Topics that are of interest to the users and developers of all desktop environments are especially welcome. The FOSDEM 2016 schedule might give you some inspiration.
Please include the following information when submitting a proposal:
How to submit
All submissions are made in the Pentabarf event planning tool: https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM17
To submit your talk, click on "Create Event", then make sure to select the “Desktops” devroom as the “Track”. Otherwise your talk will not be even considered for any devroom at all.
If you already have a Pentabarf account from a previous year, even if your talk was not accepted, please reuse it. Create an account if, and only if, you don’t have one from a previous year. If you have any issues with Pentabarf, please contact desktops-devroom AT lists DOT fosdem DOT org.
The deadline for submissions is December 23th 2016.
FOSDEM will be held on the weekend of 4 & 5 February 2017 and the Desktops DevRoom will take place on Sunday, February 5th 2017.
We will contact every submitter with a “yes” or “no” before December 11th 2016.
The talks in the Desktops DevRoom will be audio and video recorded, and possibly streamed live too.
In the "Submission notes" field, please indicate that you agree that your presentation will be licensed under the CC-By-SA-4.0 or CC-By-4.0 license and that you agree to have your presentation recorded. For example:
If you want us to stop the recording in the Q & A part (should you have one), please tell us. We can do that but only for the Q & A part.
