Hi this is a call for the Mozilla Devroom,

One more year FOSDEM is coming. The biggest FLOSS event in Europe will
be held as usual at Brussels on January 31st to February 2nd. Mozilla
has presence since 2003, and this year we will have a Mozilla Room again.

This is a call to propose your talks for FOSDEM.

This year we have some conditions to apply in order to be more
consistent with the Mozilla goals for 2015.
If you are shy, or don't feel like you want to talk in public, we will
open a call for volunteers later. We will have our devroom only one day,
so please note that we cannot assure that your talk will be selected due
to agenda constrains.

The topics that we want to cover are:
- Firefox Hello
- New developer tools
- Privacy tools
- Firefox Accounts
- Firefox OS

However, we will accept any other topic, but ideally these are the
suggested topics for this next edition.

If you feel that you are not able to talk in public, or too shy, you can
suggest topics/talks for the Mozilla devroom, only put some details in the
etherpad: https://remo.etherpad.mozilla.org/FOSDEM2015 so speakers can also
find some inspiration for their talks.

*Important Information*
Duration of the talks: 30 minutes including QA

Deadline: December 1st.
Acceptance notifications: December 15th.

Presentations will be recorded and streamed, so sending your proposal it
will imply that you accept and give permission for this. Note that
recording will be published under the same license as all FOSDEM content
(cc-by), however, exceptions could be requested.

To submit your proposal, visit :

If you have previously send a proposal for FOSDEM, you should probably
have a pentabarf account. So we kindly suggest you to not create a new
one. If you forgot your password, please reset it. If this is your first
time using pentabarf, create an account.

After you have your account configured (you will receive a confirmation
email), create the event, and click on "Show all" in the top right
corner to diplay the full form. When submitting your talk in pentabarf,
make sure to select "Mozilla devroom" as track, and include the
following information:

* The title and subtitle of your talk
* A short abstract of one paragraph
* A longer description if you wish to do so
* Links to related websites/blogs etc
