# FOSDEM'18 Rust Devroom Call for Participation

When: Sunday, 4 February 2018
Where: Brussels, Belgium.

## Overview

Welcome to the 1st edition of the Rust devroom, co-located with FOSDEM
2018 (https://fosdem.org/2018/). FOSDEM is an annual conference about
free and open source software, attended by over 5000 developers and
open-source enthusiasts from all over the world.

The devroom is a colocated conference-within-a-conference that gives us
the opportunity to come together and chat, hack, and share stories about
Rust usage in FLOSS ecosystems.

The devroom will take place on Sunday, 4 February 2018, at
ULB (Campus Solbosch) (https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1632534522),
in Brussels, Belgium. Join us to enjoy a full day of talks, demos and interesting
discussions on Rust.

Sounds interesting? Submit your talk proposal below and see you in Brussels!

## Topics

We welcome any talk proposals about Rust-related projects.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- The Rust language
    - Recent features and future roadmap
    - Architecting large projects
- Rust usage across FLOSS projects (Tor, VLC, Gnome, Firefox, etc.)

asked for a different format instead.
