> Hello,
> --8<---
> FOSDEM <http://www.fosdem.org> 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, LXQt, Windows, Mac OS X, software development for the
> desktop, general desktop matters, applications that enhance desktops and
> web (when related to desktop).
> Talks can be very specific, such as the advantages/disadvantages of
> development with Qt on Wayland over X11/Mir; 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 2014 schedule
> <https://archive.fosdem.org/2014/schedule/track/desktops/> 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 7th 2014. FOSDEM will be held on
> the weekend of January 31st-February 1st 2015 and the Desktops DevRoom will
> take place on Sunday, February 1st 2015. Please use the following website
> to submit your proposals: https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM15
> (you do not need to create a new Pentabarf account if you already have one
> from past years).
> You can also join the devroom’s mailing list, which is the official
> communication channel for the DevRoom: desktops-devroom at lists.fosdem.org
> <https://lists.fosdem.org/private/desktops-devroom/> (subscription page
