Open Source Design Devroom Call for Participation

This is the Call for Participation for the FOSDEM 2016 Open Source Design
devroom. We invite you to send in your submissions about design work on
free, libre and open source projects.

FOSDEM (https://fosdem.org) 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

After a successful run in 2015, there will be again a design devroom at
FOSDEM 2016: a full day of talks about design work on free, libre and open
source projects. The Open Source Design devroom will take place on *Saturday,
January 30th*.

We mean ‘design’ in the broadest sense: user research, interface and
interaction design, information architecture, visual design, typography,
illustration, iconography, accessibility … – 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 proposals.

Possible topics include:

   - FOSS design tools
   - Design techniques and deliverables
   - Design - engineering collaboration approaches
   - User engagement and design research activities
   - Project case studies

The talks in the Open Source Design devroom will be audio and video
recorded, and possibly streamed live too. By submitting a proposal you
