Hi all,

We are very happy to announce that the devroom "Collaborative Information
and Content Management application" will take place once again at FOSDEM
next year ! :D

Tl;dr : join us in this devroom if you are interested in anything
related to content or knowledge management. Last year, we got great
participation presenting software solutions as well as protocols, tools
and ideas to ease knowledge management. We hope to have the same kind of
ambiance this year.

This is the call for participation in the FOSDEM 2020 devroom on
Collaborative information and content management applications, to be
held on Saturday 1st February 2020 in Brussels, Belgium. We are looking
for contributions under the form of conferences, talks or discussions
covering the following main topics:

* New projects presentation
* Self-hosted platforms

If you have any idea of a talk fitting into the subject of the devroom,
please don't hesitate to let us know about it!
We hope to provide an opportunity for everyone to meet and exchange
about collaborative issues encountered while using Open Source
solutions; present the some tools used for content management and
discuss about global solutions for incentivizing collaboration.

= Submission process =

Please submit your proposals at
https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM20 before December 9th 2019.

If you already have a Pentabarf account (for example as a result of
having submitted a proposal in the past), make sure you use it to log in
and submit your proposal. Do not create a new account if you already
have one. Please provide a bit of information about yourself under
Person -> Description -> Abstract. When you submit your proposal
(creating an "Event" in Pentabarf), make sure you choose the
"Collaborative information and content management applications devroom"
in the track drop-down menu. Otherwise your proposal might go unnoticed.
Fill in at least a title and abstract for the proposed talk and a
suggested duration. Bear in mind that a lot of the value in these
meetings comes from the discussions, so please be reasonable regarding
the duration of the talk.

= Important dates =

December 9th 2019: deadline for submission of proposals
December 15th 2019 or before: announcement of final schedule
February 1st 2020, in the morning: devroom day

= Recordings =

The FOSDEM organizers hope to be able to live-stream and record all the
talks. The recordings will be published under the same license as all
FOSDEM content (CC-BY). Only presentations will be recorded, not
informal discussions and whatever happens during breaks between
presentations. By agreeing to present at FOSDEM, you automatically give
permission to be recorded. The organizers will agree to make exceptions
but only for exceptional and well-reasoned cases.
