We are excited to announce that the call for proposals is now open for the
Network devroom at [FOSDEM 2022]. FOSDEM is a free event for engineers to meet,
share ideas and collaborate. FOSDEM is one of the largest events of its kind,
hosting, thousands of developers of free and open source software from all over
the world.

Please note that, due to Covid-19, FOSDEM will be held virtually again next year
on the 5th and 6th of February, 2022. All presentations will be pre-recorded
with live chat during each presentation and live Q&A after each presentation.

Important Dates

    Sunday 12th December  Submission deadline

    5 & 6th February      Conference dates (online)


About the devroom
=================

   The FOSDEM Network devroom hosts a diversity of talks covering open source
   networking projects and technologies. The scope of the Network devroom is
   broad and targets those software developers engaged in network design,
   monitoring, management and software development with open source tools.

   We typically host a variety of talks on Networking topics including:
   - Network monitoring (inventory, discovery & telemetry),
   - Network management (enterprise, carrier-grade, cloud, IoT)
   - Networking protocols (the full alphabet soup)
   - Security (IPS, IDS, protocols)
   - Authentication
   - Development tools (libraries, SDKs, plugins)
   - Network stacks


Suggested Topics:
=================

   If it moves network packets, monitors, or interacts with, or supervises
   entities that moves network packets, it is likely a topic the devroom is
   interested in. A very /non-exhaustive/ list of the projects and topics we
   would love to see on the schedule are:

    Monitoring   Nagios, Icinga2, Naemon, NTop, SNAS, Graphana, Prometheus, collectd
    Frameworks   DPDK, eBPF, XDP, FD.io, PANDA
    Switching    Snabb, OpenvSwitch, Tungsten Fabric, Lagopus, FastClick
    Stacks       Linux, *BSD, F-Stack
    Controllers  Istio, Envoy, Network Service Mesh, OpenDayLight, Calico, Contiv
    Edge         Akraino, Openness
    Routing      FRRouting, BIRD, Go-BGP
    Management   ONAP, Ganglia, NetSNMP, PNDA.io
    Security     Suricata, Snort
    Tooling      VSPerf, TRex, Moongen, Scapy, Warp17


   Talks should be aimed at a technical audience, but should not assume that
   attendees are already familiar with your project or how it solves a given
   problem. Talk proposals may cover very specific solutions to a problem, or may
   be a higher level project overview for lesser known projects.


Code of Conduct
===============

   [FOSDEM Code of Conduct]:

   We'd like to remind all speakers and attendees that all of the presentations
   and discussions in our devroom are held under the guidelines set in the CoC
   and we expect attendees, speakers, and volunteers to follow the CoC at all
   times.

   If you submit a proposal and it is accepted, you will be required to confirm
   that you accept the FOSDEM CoC. If you have any questions about the CoC or
   wish to have one of the devroom organizers review your presentation slides or
   any other content for CoC compliance, please email us and we will do our best
   to assist you.
