Call for Participation

The virtualization devroom will feature sessions around open source
hypervisors and virtual machine managers such as KVM, Xen, bhyve,
and VirtualBox.

This room will focus on shared components and software, topics of shared
interest such as libvirt, hardware passthrough, porting to ARM or
other non-x86_64 platforms, virtualization management, Spice, etc.

Presentations will be aimed at developers working on these platforms
and improving the shared infrastructure, or common problems.

The devroom organizers will seek topics that encourage dialog between
projects and continued work post-FOSDEM.
