FOSDEM 2014 Desktops DevRoom Call for Talks



As usual, it's time to submit your talk proposal for FOSDEM


FOSDEM is one of the largest gatherings of Free Software contributors in
the world and happens each February in Brussels (Belgium). One of the
tracks will be the Desktops DevRoom (formerly known as "CrossDesktop
DevRoom"), which will host Desktop-related talks.

We are now inviting proposals for talks about Free/Libre/Open-source
Software on the topics of Desktop development, Desktop applications and
interoperability amongst Desktop Environments. This is a unique opportunity
to show novel ideas and developments to a wide technical audience.

Topics accepted include, but are not limited to: Enlightenment, Gnome, KDE,
Unity, XFCE/Razor, Windows, Mac OS X, general desktop matters, applications
that enhance desktops and web (when related to desktop).

Talks can be very specific, such as developing mobile applications with Qt
Quick; or as general as predictions for the fusion of Desktop and web in 5
years time. Topics that are of interest to the users and developers of all
desktop environments are especially welcome. The FOSDEM 2013 schedule might
give you some inspiration:

Please include the following information when submitting a proposal:

   - Your name
   - The title of your talk (please be descriptive, as titles will be
   listed with around 250 from other projects)
   - Short abstract of one or two paragraphs
   - Short bio (with photo)
   - Requested time: from 15 to 45 minutes. Normal duration is 30 minutes.
   Longer duration requests must be properly justified. You may be assigned
   LESS time than you request.

The deadline for submissions is December 14th 2013. FOSDEM will be held on
the weekend of 1-2 February 2014. Please use the following website to
submit your proposals:
