Hello friends of OpenJDK,

We're excited to announce that friends of OpenJDK (foojay.io), that is,
developers who use OpenJDK on a day to day basis developing tools and
technologies in languages such as Java, will be virtually represented at
FOSDEM 2021 at the Foojay DevRoom!  We can't wait to connect with you all
on the 6th and 7th of February 2021 online. Here you can find the CFP (Call
For Papers) for submitting your talks, giving you the opportunity to
deliver a talk during the Foojay DevRoom. The DevRoom will take place
online on Saturday and Sunday, the 6th and 7th of February 2021. Join us to
enjoy a full day of talks, demos, and interesting discussions about what
developers around the world are doing with the OpenJDK.

1. How to submit

We welcome any talk proposals about OpenJDK-related tools and technologies.
We are looking for proposals for 25 minute talks (suggested 20 minute talk
+ 5 minute Q&A). We invite authors to submit original, high-quality work
with sufficient background material to be clear to the community. All
presentations will need to be pre-recorded and put into our system by
January 15th. Your presentation will be streamed the day of the event and
we will run the Q&A just after. By submitting a talk you agree to be
available the day of the event to participate in the live Q&A. Please be
aware of the fact that DevRoom talks at FOSDEM will be made available
online afterwards. 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.

Submissions must include:

- Abstract
- Expected prior knowledge / intended audience
- Speaker bio
