Hi there

Here is the call for participation for next FOSDEM (Bruxelles - 4 and
5 February 2012). Would be nice to have Mageia for one conference at
least. If you have any idea about subject please make some proposal.
Can be about technical subject but also organization...

Subject: [FOSDEM] Cross-Distribution devroom: Call for Participation
To: fosdem at lists.fosdem.org, distributions at lists.fosdem.org


Now that the word is out on the list of accepted devrooms, we can sure
expect many calls for participation from the many devrooms on this list.
Let me be the first (I hope):

There will again be a cross-distribution miniconference at FOSDEM this
year. People or distribution projects who are interested in joining it
are hereby invited to communicate that desire.

For practical purposes, I would like to request that one person steps
forward from each involved distributions devroom, so that we can list
the participating projects on our website (as during previous years),
but also so that I have some contact within each project in case it's

People interested in holding a session should let that intention be
known on the distributions at lists.fosdem.org mailinglist, with the
following information:

- Their name
- A (short) bio, to be put on the website along with their speaker name
- (optionally) a picture of themselves
- The title of their session (which will go on the website and in the
- A (short) abstract describing the session in further detail.
- The desired approximate duration for the session.

Sessions can be talks, round tables, BoFs, or any number of other things
that could generally benefit from an audience of distributions
developers. In the case of BoF or round table sessions, note that I will
still consider the submitter to be the 'speaker', though their role will
probably be more something of a moderator.

The deadline for submissions is December 22nd.
