FOSDEM <http://www.fosdem.org> is one of the largest gatherings of Free
Software contributors in the world and happens each February in Brussels
(Belgium). One of the tracks will be the Desktops DevRoom (formerly known
as “CrossDesktop DevRoom”), which will host Desktop-related talks.
We are now inviting proposals for talks about Free/Libre/Open-source
Software on the topics of Desktop development, Desktop applications and
interoperability amongst Desktop Environments. This is a unique opportunity
to show novel ideas and developments to a wide technical audience.
Topics accepted include, but are not limited to: Enlightenment, Gnome, KDE,
Unity, XFCE, LXQt, Windows, Mac OS X, software development for the desktop,
general desktop matters, applications that enhance desktops and web (when
related to desktop).
Talks can be very specific, such as the advantages/disadvantages of
development with Qt on Wayland over X11/Mir; or as general as predictions
for the fusion of Desktop and web in 5 years time. Topics that are of
interest to the users and developers of all desktop environments are
especially welcome. The FOSDEM 2014 schedule
