[mos-ak] FOSDEM 2015 Electronic Design Automation Devroom Call for Participation

 This is the call for participation in the FOSDEM 2015 devroom on Free/Open Source Software (FOSS) Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools, to be held on Sunday 1 February 2015 in Brussels, Belgium. We are looking for contributions under the form of talks covering the following main topics:
We hope to provide an opportunity for attendees to bring themselves up to date on the latest FOSS EDA developments, share knowledge and identify opportunities to collaborate on development tasks.

The submission process

Please submit your proposals at before 1 December 2014.

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 in Person -> Biography. When you submit your proposal (creating an "Event" in Pentabarf), make sure you choose the "Electronic design automation 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
  • 1 December 2014: deadline for submission of proposals
  • 15 December 2014: speakers notified
  • 30 December 2014: schedule published at
  • 1 February 2015: devroom day

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