If you already have a Pentabarf account (for example as a result of
having submitted a proposal in the past), make sure you use it to log in
and submit your proposal. Do not create a new account if you already
have one. Please provide a bit of information about yourself in Person
-> Biography. When you submit your proposal (creating an "Event" in
Pentabarf), make sure you choose the "Electronic design automation
devroom" in the track drop-down menu. Otherwise your proposal might go
unnoticed. Fill in at least a title and abstract for the proposed talk
and a suggested duration. Bear in mind that a lot of the value in these
meetings comes from the discussions, so please be reasonable regarding
the duration of the talk.
1 December 2014: deadline for submission of proposals
The FOSDEM organisers hope to be able to live-stream and record all the
talks. The recordings will be published under the same licence as all
FOSDEM content (CC-BY). Only presentations will be recorded, not
informal discussions and whatever happens during the lunch break. By
agreeing to present at FOSDEM, you automatically give permission to be
recorded. The organisers will agree to make exceptions but only for
exceptional and well-reasoned cases.
Feel free to subscribe to the mailing
list of the EDA devroom
to submit ideas, ask questions and generally discuss about the event.
Spread the word!
This is the first EDA devroom at FOSDEM. Let's make sure as many
projects and developers as possible are present. Thanks!
