We are pleased to announce the CfP for the Open Source Computer Aided
Design and Modeling devroom at FOSDEM 2020, 1-2 February 2020, Brussel,

The devroom will take place on Saturday, 1 February 2020, at [ULB
(Campus Solbosch)](https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1632534522), in
Brussels, Belgium.

We hope you'll join us for a full day of talks, demos and interesting
discussions on designing, modeling and testing hardware using Open
Source tools.

We welcome any talk proposals about the creation of physical objects.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Circuit Design
    * Printed circuit board design tools
    * Circuit simulation
- 3d modeling and analysis
    * Solid modeling tools
    * Meshing, modeling and transforming physical representations
    * Finite element analysis
- 3d printing
    * 3d slicing tools
    * Motor control
- Machine design and integration
    * Open Hardware projects
    * ECAD/MCAD integration
    * Thermal analysis
    * Wire modeling
- Physical Model Data storage
    * Data representation and optimization
    * Version control in hardware data storage
    * Collaborative and team-based hardware design techniques

Slots will be allocated for short (20 minutes) and long (40 minutes)

Speakers need to specify their preferred format. Both include time for
questions and answers.

Depending on the number of submissions, submitters may be asked to
utilize an alternate time format.

The submission process

Please submit your proposals at
https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM20 before 20 November 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 include the following information with your submission:

- Abstract
- Preferred Session length
- Speaker bio
- Link to any hardware / code /slides for the talk

When you submit your proposal (creating an "Event" in Pentabarf), make
sure you choose the "Open Source Computer Aided Design and Modeling" in
the track drop-down menu. Otherwise your proposal may go unnoticed.
Fill in at least a title and abstract for the proposed talk and a
suggested duration. Keep in mind that much of the value in these
meetings comes from the discussions, so

please allot at least 20% of the talk time for questions and answers.

Important dates

- Call for papers available: 13 October 2019
- Call for participation closes: 20 November 2019
- Devroom schedule available: 15 December 2019
- Devroom day: Saturday 1 February 2020 (09:00 to 17:00)


The talks will be recorded and live-streamed during FOSDEM20. The
recordings will be published under the same licence 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 give permission to be recorded.
Please contact us if you would like to request an exception to the
recording policy for your talk.

Mailing list
