== IN MORE DETAIL ==

The Community DevRoom will be back at FOSDEM 2021 (Online). Our goals in
running this DevRoom are to:

   -

   Educate those who are primarily software developers on
   community-oriented topics that are vital in the process of software
   development, e.g. effective collaboration
   -

   Provide concrete advice on dealing with squishy human problems
   -

   To unpack preconceived ideas of what community is and the role it plays
   in human society, free software, and a corporate-dominated world in 2021
   -

   We are seeking proposals on all aspects of creating and nurturing
   communities for free software projects


== TALK TOPICS ==

Here are some topics we are interested in hearing more about this year:

   -

   Creating sustainable communities in the midst of a pandemic
   -

   Community and engagement in a virtual world
   -

   Virtually overworked? Burnout is real, and even more so now.
   -

   Conflict resolution
   -

   How are communities changing in the face of a pandemic and how has it
   affected them?



Again, these are just suggestions. We welcome proposals on any aspect of
community building!

== HOW TO SUBMIT A TALK ==

   -

   Head to the FOSDEM 2021 Pentabarf <https://penta.fosdem.org/submission>
   website.


   -

   If you already have a Pentabarf account, please don’t create a new one.
   -

   If you forgot your password, reset it.
   -

   Otherwise, follow the instructions to create an account.
   -

   Once logged in, select, “Create Event” and click on “Show All” in the
   top right corner to display the full form.
   -

   Your submission must include the following information:


   -

   First and last name / Nickname (optional)/ Image
   -

   Email address
   -

   Mobile phone number (this is a very hard requirement as there will be no
   other reliable form of emergency communication on the day)


   -

   Title and subtitle of your talk (please be descriptive, as titles will
   be listed with ~500 from other projects)
   -

   Track: Select “Community DevRoom” as the track

   -

   Persons: Add yourself as the speaker with your bio
   -

   Description: Abstract (required)/ Full Description (optional)
   -

   Links to related websites / blogs etc.
   -

   Beyond giving us the above, let us know if there’s anything else you’d
   like to share as part of your submission – Twitter handle, GitHub activity
   history – whatever works for you. We especially welcome videos of you
   speaking elsewhere, or even just a list of talks you have done previously.
   First time speakers are, of course, welcome!
   -

   For issues with Pentabarf, please contact
   community-devroom at lists.fosdem.org. Feel free to send a notification of
   your submission to that email.



== FOR ACCEPTED TALKS ==

   -

   Once your talk is accepted, you will be assigned a volunteer to help you
   with producing your pre-recorded content.
   -

   This volunteer will help review the content and ensure it has the
   required quality, and ensure the content is entered into the system and
   ready to broadcast.
   -

   You must be available for the Q/A session on the day your session is
   streamed.
