Hi all, On FOSDEM, a yearly developers' meeting in the city of Brussels, Debian will have a Developers' Room at its disposal. For those not familiar with the term: a DevRoom is a room dedicated to one project or area of interest, where people connected to that project or area can organize talks and/or other things of interest, aside from the official talks which are organized by the event organizers themselves. Due to organizational issues, the Debian DevRoom will be shared with the people from the Free Java community. We agreed on a schedule that gives both groups three hours to talk about subjects specific to them, and have allocated the remaining three hours to subjects that are, or could be, of interest to both groups. As Arnaud Vandyck will be giving a talk about Java packaging for Debian, that leaves two shared hours and three Debian-specific ones. I sent a first CFP on January 7th, but have not received any reaction yet, so I'm trying to widen my audience a bit now. People interested in giving a talk in the Debian DevRoom at FOSDEM about any subject, Debian specific or shared Java/Debian, should contact me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (at their option) with details about the subject of the talk, so that it can be planned in. Given the general context of the event, which is aimed at developers rather than users, talks should be of a more or less technical manner, and should have a duration of about one hour. Also, it should be noted that the Debian project will have a booth at FOSDEM as well, and that the event organizers told me they'd try to make sure the booth is as close to the DevRoom as possible (so as to make it possible for people interested in both the booth and the DevRoom to go from one to the other without having to walk too far). Although I have received offers to help man the Debian booth by various people, extra help in that area is still welcome (even if not as urgent as people offering to give talks).  http://www.fosdem.org/  http://lists.debian.org/debian-events-eu/2004/debian-events-eu-200401/msg00011.html -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "Stop breathing down my neck."
