We are pleased to announce the CfP for the Open Hardware and CAD/CAM
devroom at FOSDEM 2024, 3-4 February 2024, Brussels, Belgium.

The devroom will take place on Sunday, 4 February 2020, at [ULB (Campus
Solbosch)] (https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1632534522).

We hope you'll join us for a full day of talks, demos and interesting
discussions on designing, modeling and testing hardware using Open Source

We welcome any talk proposals about the design and creation of physical

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Circuit Design
    * Printed circuit board design tools
    * Circuit simulation
- 3d modeling and analysis
    * Solid modeling tools
    * Meshing, modeling and transforming physical representations
    * Finite element analysis
- 3d printing
    * 3d slicing tools
    * Motor control
- Machine design and integration
    * Open Hardware projects
    * ECAD/MCAD integration
    * Thermal analysis
    * Wire modeling
- Physical Model Data storage
    * Data representation and optimization
    * Version control in hardware data storage
    * Collaborative and team-based hardware design techniques

Slots will be allocated for short (20 minutes) and long (40 minutes) talks.

Speakers need to specify their preferred format. Both include time for
questions and answers.

Depending on the number of submissions, submitters may be asked to utilize
an alternate time format.

Important Dates
Submission Deadline: 8 Dec 2023
Acceptance Confirmation: 10 Dec 2023
Schedule announcement: 15 Dec 2023

The submission process
Please submit your proposal at https://pretalx.fosdem.org/fosdem-2024/cfp
before 8 Dec 2023.

Please note that we are no longer using the Pentabarf system.  Allow a
little extra time in your submission process to account for any hiccups
along the way!

Please include the following information with your submission:

- Abstract
- Preferred Session length
- Speaker bio
- Link to any hardware / code /slides for the talk

When you submit your proposal, make sure you choose "Open Hardware CAD/CAM"
in the track drop-down menu. Otherwise your proposal may go unnoticed. Fill
in at least a title and abstract for the proposed talk and a suggested
duration. Keep in mind that much of the value in these meetings comes from
the discussions, so please allot at least 20% of the talk time for
questions and answers.

The talks will be recorded and live-streamed during FOSDEM20. The
recordings will be published under the same licence as all FOSDEM content
(CC-BY). Only presentations will be recorded, not informal discussions and
whatever happens during breaks between presentations.  We require
affirmative consent to this license.  Please include the following
statement in your submission notes:

If my presentation is accepted for FOSDEM, I hereby agree to license all
recordings, slides, and other associated materials under the Creative
