Dear friends and fans of software-defined radio and free/open-source radio
topics in general,

FOSDEM 2020 (the free and open-source developer's meeting in Brussels,
Europe) will, once again, feature a track on Software Defined Radio, and
any other radio-related topics in the (now known as) *Free Software
Radio* devroom.
Therefore, we invite developers and users from the free software radio
community to join us for this track and present your talks or demos.

Software Radio has become an important tool to allow anyone to access the
EM spectrum. Using free software radio libraries and applications and cheap
hardware, anyone can now start hacking on wireless communications, remote
sensing, radar, fun hacks of all sorts, or other applications. At FOSDEM,
we hope to network all these projects and improve collaboration, bring new
ideas forward and get more people involved.

The track's web site resides at the link below. The final schedule will be
available through Pentabarf and the official FOSDEM website.


Additional Information will be also available at:

** Submit your presentations

To suggest a talk, go to https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM20 and
follow the instructions (you need an account, but can use your account from
last year if you have one). You need to create an 'Event'; make sure it's
in the Free Software Radio track! Lengths aren't fixed, but give a
realistic estimate and please don't exceed 30 minutes unless you have
something special planned (in that case, contact one of us). Also, don't
forget to include time for Q&A.
We will typically go for 30-minute slots -- shorter talks, unless they're
really short, usually tend to screw up the schedule too much.

You aren't limited to slide presentations, of course. Be creative. However,
FOSDEM is an open-source conference, therefore we ask you to stay clear of
marketing presentations and present something relevant to free/open
software. We like nitty-gritty technical stuff.

Topics discussed in this devroom include:

* SDR Frameworks + Tools
* Cellular/telecoms software
* Free/Open SDR hardware
* Wireless security
* Random fun wireless hacks
* SDR in education
* Satellite/spacecraft communication
* Ham radio related topics

** Important Dates

FOSDEM is February 1st and 2nd, 2020. The Free Software Radio devroom is
happening on Sunday, the 2nd of February.

The submission deadline is Friday, December 6th. A complete schedule for
the presentations in the devroom will be available on the 15th of December.

In the last years we were always full to the brim with presentations, so if
you want to present, please make sure to submit your abstracts soon!

** Steering Committee
The track committee consists of:

* Phil Balister - "Crofton"
* Sylvain Munaut -"tnt"
* Derek Kozel - "dkozel"
* Nicolas Cuervo - "primercuervo"
* Martin Braun - "mbr0wn"  (Emeritus)

Hope to hear from you soon! And please forward this announcement.
