Subject: [FOSDEM] FOSDEM 2023: call for devrooms

We now invite proposals for developer rooms for FOSDEM 2023. Invitations 
to submit proposals for other elements of the event will follow in the 
next couple of weeks.

FOSDEM offers open source and free software developers a place to meet, 
share ideas and collaborate. Renowned for being highly 
developer-oriented, the event brings together some 8000+ geeks from all 
over the world.

The twenty-third edition will take place Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th 
February 2023 in Brussels, Belgium.

Developer rooms are assigned to self-organising groups to work together 
on open source and free software projects, to discuss topics relevant to 
a broader subset of the community, etc. Most content should take the 
form of presentations. Proposals involving collaboration across project 
or domain boundaries are strongly encouraged.

We are happy that we have the opportunity again to run a physical 
conference in Brussels. However, this also means that we will have less 
space for parallel tracks. That's why we are polling devroom organisers 
to see if they have any interest in a hybrid session, eg with a physical 
devroom one day and a virtual session the next day, or even if people 
would prefer an online devroom only.

For virtual devrooms we would use the same Matrix platform as last year. 
This allows devroom organizers to run the conference primarily using 
pre-recorded talks with some live content including Q&A sessions and 
discussion panels, with streaming and archiving. The recordings will be 
published under the same licence as all FOSDEM content (CC-BY). Note 
that we might decide not to run a virtual component if there is 
insufficient interest.

Devroom managers must enter a complete schedule into our conference 
system by 15th December.

Developer room proposals should be submitted through the form at 
https://fosdem.org/devroom which contains further information. When 
applying, please indicate your preferred devroom duration. Note that 
given the limited number of rooms, two physical days will not be an option
