FOSDEM is the Free and Open source Software Developers' European Meeting, a conference happening every year in Brussels, Belgium, over a weekend. This year it will be on January 30-31. It is the biggest FOSS event in Europe with over 5000 participants and 400 speakers.
In 2015 we had an impromptu Birds of a Feather meeting for the Lua community there. In 2016 we will have a real developer room, on the afternoon of Saturday 30th January, so we are now accepting submissions of talk proposals.
The format will be 30 minutes talks, including questions (so roughly 20-25 minutes for talks, 5-10 minutes for Q&A). Feel free to ask if you would like to have a longer or a shorter slot.
The talks will be filmed, possibly streamed live, and the videos will be made available publicly under a CC-BY license. Submitting a talk for the devroom implies that you agree to be filmed under such terms.
All topics related to Lua (including LuaJIT) are accepted. The deadline for submission is Tuesday 1st December 2015. All submission should be made using the FOSDEM even planning tool Pentabarf. When you create your event, make sure to select "Lua devroom" under "Track". If you already have a Pentabarf account from a previous year, please reuse it instead of creating a new one.
In the morning, this room will be used by the GNU Guile community. We are considering sharing one hour around lunch time for talks that may interest both communities. So if you have an idea for such a talk, do not hesitate to submit it!
There is a mailing-list for the devroom, to which you can subscribe (subscriptions have to be accepted by an admin so you will not receive the confirmation email immediatly).
If you have any questions, you can contact the devroom organizers by email:
