FOSDEM '16 -- Call for Participation¶
FOSDEM 2016 (the free and open source developer's meeting in Brussels, Europe) will feature a new track on Software Defined Radio.
Therefore, we invite developers and users from the free software radio community to join us for this track and present your talks or demos.
Software Radio has become an important tool to allow anyone access the EM spectrum. Using free software radio libraries and applications and cheap hardware, anyone can now start hacking on wireless communications, remote sensing, radar, fun hacks of all sorts, or other applications. At FOSDEM, we hope to network all these projects and improve collaboration, bring new ideas forward and get more people involved.
All presentations will be filmed and streamed. Presenting at FOSDEM implies giving permission to be recorded. The recordings will be published under the same licence as all FOSDEM content (CC-BY). Exceptions can be made for exceptional circumstances but we would like there to be as few as possible.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the A/V setup (make video recordings etc.). Prior experience helps, but is not required. If you're interested, please contact us.
Submit your presentations¶
To suggest a talk, go to https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM16 and follow the instructions. You need to create an 'Event', make sure it's in the Software Defined Radio track! Lengths aren't fixed, but give a realistic estimate and please don't exceed 30 minutes unless you have something special planned (in that case, contact one of us).
You aren't limited to slide presentations, of course. Be creative. However, FOSDEM is an open source conference, therefore we ask you to stay clear of marketing presentations. Of course, we like nitty-gritty technical stuff.
