FOSDEM is the largest Open Source conference in Europe (and in the world?) where over 5000+ people attend to hear more about Open Source. This year in association with the EBU and FOMS, we are organising an "Open media devroom" allowing people to present and discuss various Open Source projects relating to multimedia, and for our part of the session, relating especially to broadcast.
There's a lot going on and we urge you to talk about anything related using the information below:
Dear open source in broadcasting community,
We have submitted an application to get a developer room for presentations dedicated to media at FOSDEM 2015 in Brussels (https://fosdem.org/2015/ ).
It has been accepted for the first day on Saturday 31th January as "Open media devroom" and we co-organise it with the FOMS community.
So now the call for participation is opened.
If you are interested to present, please register your submission directly on this link: https://penta.fosdem.org/
You need to create an account and then go to "create event" to give the details of your presentation.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO SELECT THE "OPEN MEDIA DEVROOM" TRACK IN YOUR SUBMISSION. Otherwise, we won't see it and it will appear in other tracks that we don't control.
The deadline for submission is: 1st December 2014.
Presentation are recorded and will be made available with CC-BY licence by FOSDEM.
The timeslot for presentation is 20 minutes and it is foreseen to have panel discussions also (40 minutes).
We will then have to select submission together with FOMS community and final schedule is expected to be published by 30th December.
