Call for Participation

This is the call for participation in the FOSDEM 2019 devroom on Collaborative information and content management applications, to be held on Saturday 2nd February 2019 in Brussels, Belgium. We are looking for contributions under the form of conferences, talks or discussions covering the following main topics:

  • New projects presentation

  • Secure collaboration
  • Collaborative applications
  • Connectors & Integrations
  • Knowledge management techniques
  • Protocols for collaboration

If you have any idea of a talk fitting into the subject of the devroom, please don't hesitate to let us know about it!
We hope to provide an opportunity for everyone to meet and exchange about collaborative issues encountered while using Open Source solutions ; present the some tools used for content management and discuss about global solutions for incentivizing collaboration.

Submission process

Please submit your proposals at https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM19 before December 10th 2018.

If you already have a Pentabarf account (for example as a result of having submitted a proposal in the past), make sure you use it to log in and submit your proposal. Do not create a new account if you already have one. Please provide a bit of information about yourself under Person -> Description -> Abstract. When you submit your proposal (creating an "Event" in Pentabarf), make sure you choose the "Collaborative information and content management applications devroom" in the track drop-down menu. Otherwise your proposal might go unnoticed. Fill in at least a title and abstract for the proposed talk and a suggested duration. Bear in mind that a lot of the value in these meetings comes from the discussions, so please be reasonable regarding the duration of the talk.

Important dates

December 10th 2018: deadline for submission of proposals
December 16th 2018 or before: announcement of final schedule
February 2nd 2019, in the afternoon: devroom day

Recordings

The FOSDEM organizers hope to be able to live-stream and record all the talks. The recordings will be published under the same license as all FOSDEM content (CC-BY). Only presentations will be recorded, not informal discussions and whatever happens during breaks between presentations. By agreeing to present at FOSDEM, you automatically give permission to be recorded. The organizers will agree to make exceptions but only for exceptional and well-reasoned cases.
