Hi everyone,
On behalf of the Collaboration and content management applications
devroom, I'm happy to announce that our call for participation is now
open. See below for the full CFP ; you can also access it directly on
https://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Events/Fosdem2021/DevRoom/CFP/
.

= Call for participation =

This is the call for participation in the FOSDEM 2021 devroom on
Collaborative information and content management applications, to be
held on Saturday 6th February 2021 online. We are looking for
contributions under the form of conferences, talks or discussions
covering the following main topics:

* New projects presentation
* Self-hosted platforms
* Secure collaboration
* Collaborative applications
* Connectors & Integrations
* Knowledge management techniques
* Protocols for collaboration
* …

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/FOSDEM21 before December 26th
2020.

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.

Once the schedule of the devroom will be finalized, we will contact
you in order to help you record your talk in advance, and ensure that
the recording is of good quality.

= Important dates =

* December 26th 2020: deadline for submission of proposals
* December 31st 2020 or before: announcement of final schedule
* January 1st to January 15th: speakers record their talks
* February 6th 2021: devroom day, online

= What's the organization this year ? =

While the global organization of the event is still in progress, here
are the elements that we already know regarding the organization of
the devroom. Please consider them before submitting a proposal :

* The reference time will be Brussels local lime (CET).
* Talks have to be pre-recorded in advance between the first two weeks
of January, and will be streamed during the event.
* Q/A session will be taken live, just after each recorded talk. As
such, please make sure that you will be online and available on the
day of the event.
* A facility will be provided for people watching to chat between themselves.
* A facility will be provided for people watching to submit questions.

= Recordings =

As previous years, the talks and Q/A sessions will be recorded. The
recordings will be published under the same license as all FOSDEM
content (CC-BY). 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.

Thanks,
Clément
