Hello all,

Do we already know when the developer rooms will be accepted?

The given estimate was to have them announced by the end of September,
since we started the process earlier I was hoping we could meet this
deadline to have a bit more time for the CFP. But no pressure, of
course ;)

> The nineteenth edition will take place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd
> February 2019 at the usual location: ULB Campus Solbosch in Brussels.
> We will record and stream all main tracks, devrooms and lightning talks
> live. The recordings will be published under the same licence as all

> legitimate reason why your presentation should not be streamed or
> recorded, you must seek our agreement before submitting it.
> Main Tracks
> Previous editions have featured main tracks centered around security,
> operating system development, community building, and many other topics.
> Presentations are expected to be 50 minutes long (including audience
> questions) and should cater to a varied technical audience. The
> conference covers reasonable travel expenses agreed in advance and
> arranges accommodation for accepted main track speakers if needed.
> Proposals for main track presentations should be submitted using
> Pentabarf: https://fosdem.org/submit. If you already created an account
> in the system for a previous edition, please reuse it rather than re-
> registering.
> Submissions will be reviewed in two batches, beginning with those
> received by 13 October. The final deadline is 3 November.
> Questions or remarks? Contact us at program at fosdem.org.
> Key dates:
> 13 October: deadline for first batch of main track proposals
> 3 November: final deadline for main track proposals
> 1 November onwards: main track talks announced (in batches)
> Developer Rooms
> Developer rooms are assigned to self-organising groups to work together
> on open source and free software projects, to discuss topics relevant to
> a broader subset of the community, etc. Most content should take the
> form of presentations. Proposals involving collaboration across project
> or domain boundaries are strongly encouraged.
> Developer room proposals should be submitted through the form at
> https://fosdem.org/devroom which contains further information.
> Questions or remarks? Contact us at devrooms at fosdem.org.
> Key dates:
> 20 September: deadline for developer room proposals
> 30 September: accepted developer rooms announced
> 16 October (or earlier): developer rooms issue Calls for Participation
> 15 December (or earlier): developer rooms publish complete schedules
> Stands
> FOSDEM offers open source and free software projects the opportunity to
> display their work during the event. At its stand, a project can share
> information, demo software, sell merchandise, give away goodies, and so
> on, and personally interact with the visitors.
> What we offer:
> - one 180x80cm table, positioned in one of the buildings with developer
>   rooms, for the entire duration of the conference. A second table is
>   possible in a few cases, but the pressure on space means this is
>   becoming increasingly rare and needs strong justification. Joint
>   submissions that share a table between related projects will be
>   favoured in the selection process.
> - two chairs per table
> - one power socket type C/E (if you require adapters or additional
>   sockets, please bring them yourself)
> - fast uplink shared wireless Internet access
> To apply, please fill out the form at: https://fosdem.org/stands which
> contains further information.
> Questions or remarks? Contact us at stands at fosdem.org.
> Key dates:
> 2 November: deadline for stand proposals
> 11 November: accepted stands announced
> Lightning talks
> Lighting talks are short — 15 minute long — talks on a wide variety of
> topics. Anyone who has something interesting to say about an open source
> or free software topic can apply. We particularly encourage topics that
> do not fit in any of the developer rooms.
> Proposals for lightning talks should be submitted using Pentabarf:
> https://fosdem.org/submit. Please select "lightning Talks" in the
> "track" field. If you already created an account in the system for a
> previous edition, please reuse it rather than re-registering.
> Questions or remarks? Contact us at lightningtalks at fosdem.org.
> Key dates:
> 24 November: deadline for lightning talk proposals
> 15 December: accepted lightning talks announced
> All deadlines are at 23.59 UTC.
