Codes of conduct:


FOSDEM aims to be a free, open and cooperative event. This means we expect

collaboration from all the FOSDEM participants, and for everybody to behave

respectfully towards all others, including those that are different or

think differently from yourself.

Please be helpful, considerate, friendly and respectful towards all other

participants and respect the environment. We don't condone harassment or

offensive behaviour at our conference. We consider it against our values as

human beings. We're voicing our strong, unequivocal support of exemplary

behaviour by all participants.

If you have previously submitted a proposal for FOSDEM, you will most

likely already have a Pentabarf account. If so, the easiest is to reuse it.

If not, create a new account and then click on “Create Event” in the menu

and use that form to submit your proposal. Make sure to select the

“JavaScript devroom” as track, or we will not be able to consider it.

Please make sure to include the following items:

- Title and subtitle of your talk

- Learning outcome(s) or key takeaways

- 5 lines abstract of your presentation

- Full description of your presentation

- Relevant links to websites, blogs, documentation, and other resources

- Email in your speaker profile

We are open to any topic related to JavaScript but we are mostly interested

in topics revolving around

   - Core language (ES5, ES6, ES7, closure, scope,  etc)

   - Tooling (Babel, packing, code quality, etc)

   - SPWAs and frameworks (React, ReactNative, Vue, Angular, shadow DOM,


   - New domain specific frameworks (machine learning, XR, IoT, etc)

   - Interaction with other languages (EMScriptem, WASM, etc)

   - Wildcard, surprise us!

Please note that for this year unfortunately we do not offer any kind of

funding for the speakers.

Please note that all talks will be streamed live, recorded and made

available through the FOSDEM archives. By sending in your proposal you

agree to these terms. Note that recordings will be published under the same

license as all other FOSDEM content (cc-by).

Looking forward to reading your proposals and to make a great dev room
