Sunday, February 4th, 2018, Brussels, Belgium

*# Overview *

After successful runs in 2015, 2016 and 2017, there will be again a design
devroom at FOSDEM 2018: a full day of talks about design work on free,
libre and open source projects.
The Open Source Design devroom will take place on Sunday, February 4th.

We invite everyone to send in submissions about design work on free, libre
and open source projects.

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


*# What and how to submit *
Recording and licensing:
The talks in the Open Source Design devroom will be audio and video
recorded, and possibly streamed live too. By submitting a proposal you
consent to be recorded and agree to license the content of your talk under
a Creative Commons (CC-BY) license.

*# Format: *
20-minute presentations

*# Submission deadline*:
