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
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
