This is the Call for Participation for the FOSDEM 2015 Open Source
Design devroom. We invite you to send in your submissions about design
work on free, libre and open source projects.
FOSDEM is the Free and Open source Software Developers' European
Meeting, a free and non-commercial two-day weekend event that offers
open source contributors a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
For the first time this year, there will be a design devroom at
FOSDEM: a full day of talks around design work on free, libre and open
source projects. The Open Source Design devroom will take place on
Sunday, February 1st.
We mean ‘design’ in the broadest sense, from user research, to
interface and interaction design, typography, and usability testing -
all in the context of open source projects, which we believe
introduces unique challenges. Designers, and developers working with
designers (or on a design-minded project) are welcome to submit
