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
- Cost of maintenance
- Power Management
- Interoperability solutions for heterogeneous applications, devices,
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.
