FOSDEM 2020 IoT Devroom Call for Proposals

FOSDEM (Free & Open-source Software Developers’ European Meeting) takes place every year in Brussels, Belgium on the first weekend of February.  FOSDEM 2020 is scheduled for February 1-2, and now that developer rooms have already been announced, there are calls for proposals for each topic.

Benjamin Henrion (aka Zoobab), a frequent reader and commenter of CNX Software, will be in charge of the IoT devroom and has now initiated a call for proposals for Internet of Things talks.

The devroom will take place on Saturday or Sunday between around 10.30 and 18:00. Each talk will last 25 minutes with a 5-minute break between talks.

The talks must be about fully open source projects that cover one of the topics below:

  • Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication on small embedded devices
  • Distributed applications in any field of interest for autonomous/self-controlled devices, (e.g. domotics, automotive, etc)
  • Networking: TCP/IP, mesh networking, message queuing, cross-layer solutions
  • Real-life problematics such as
    • Out of grid communications
    • Resiliance
    • Security
    • Cost of maintenance
    • Power Management
    • Reachability
    • Containers
  • Interoperability solutions for heterogeneous applications, devices,
    protocols, media

There will be one hour for “Super Lightning Talks (SLT)”, where selected developers will have 5 minutes to showcase their open-source IoT project.

You can submit your proposal for a talk or 5-minute showcase via FOSDEM’s Pentabarf web tool.

I think the “fully foss” requirement is going to limit the number of interesting projects to be honest.

Even partially would be fine, as long as we know the limitations. We got problems in the past with ‘commercial’ vendors trying to sell their product through boring presentations.
