to meeting with you all on the 4th/5th of February 2023 in Brussels,

Here you can find the CFP (Call For Papers) for submitting your talks

## About FOSDEM

From: https://fosdem.org/2023/about/
FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organized by the community,
for the community.

The goal is to provide free and open source software developers and
communities a place to meet to:

- get in touch with other developers and projects
- be informed about the latest developments in the free software and
open source world
- attend interesting talks and presentations on various topics by
project leaders and committers
- promote the development and benefits of free software and open
source solutions

Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organizers
gratefully accept donations and sponsorship.
