List of FOSDEM 2013 devrooms announced
The organisers of the FOSDEM 2013 conference in Brussels have published a list of the "devrooms" that will be held at the event. Devrooms are organised by conference attendees and are day-long mini-conferences on a particular topic that are allocated their own space within the larger event. FOSDEM is one of the largest gatherings of open source developers and users world wide and is held annually in Brussels, Belgium. This year, the conference will take place on 2 and 3 February.
For 2013, two-day devrooms on general topics such as cross-distribution, cross-desktop, embedded and mobile development and legal issues concerning software development are being organised. Other devrooms deal with specific technologies such as X.org and Mono, several programming languages, and software packages such as LibreOffice, Apache OpenOffice and WINE.
A full list of all devrooms is available on the FOSDEM web site. The conference organisers have also started to list calls for talks; since devrooms are being organised by independent individuals, potential speakers will have to contact the organisers directly. Some of the larger devrooms also have their own mailing lists.
