Hello World, I’ve announced a call for talks on this list a while back, but so far there hasn’t been much response to that, so here’s a second call for talks:
FOSDEM 2012 will happen during the weekend of the 4th and 5th of
February, at the campus “Solbosch” of the ULB in Brussels, Belgium. As
during the past two years, there will be a distributions developer’s
room in which the Debian project will be praticipating. People
interested in hosting a session should submit a proposals to the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailinglist, containing the following
– Their name,
– A short bio,
– (optionally) a picture,
– The title for the talk,
– An abstract
– The desired duration for the session.
Acceptable sessions can be any wide range of things, including talks,
BoF sessions, and round tables. Note that for BoFs and round table
sessions, the submitter will be considered the ‘speaker’, who will be
expected to introduce the subject and serve as moderator.
The two cross-distributions devrooms are intended to be for people from
any participating distribution project, so speakers should expect an
audience which may or may not be familiar with Debian’s history and
processes. Having said that, there is no reason why talks on
Debian-specific subjects, or indeed targetted at Debian developers only,
would not be welcome on the schedule; so if you have something
interesting to say, please do not hesitate to send in a proposal.
The deadline for submissions is December 22nd.
