FOSDEM '14 Virtualisation and IaaS devroom

Call for Participation

The scope for this devroom is open source, openly-developed projects in
the areas of virtualisation and IaaS type clouds, ranging from low level
to data center, up to cloud management platforms and cloud resource

Sessions should always target a developer audience. Bonus points for
collaborative sessions that would be appealing to developers from
multiple projects.

We are particularly interested in the following themes:
* low level virtualisation aspects
* new features in classic and container-based virtualisation technologies
* new use cases for virtualisation, such as virtualisation in mobile,
automotive and embedded in general
* other resource virtualisation technologies: networking, storage, …
* deep technical dives into specific IaaS or virtualisation management
projects features
* relationship between IaaS projects and specific dependencies (not just
* integration and development leveraging solutions from multiple projects
