We are excited to announce that the call for proposals is now open for the
Virtualization and Cloud infrastructure devroom at the upcoming FOSDEM
2024, to be hosted on February 3rd 2024.

This devroom is a collaborative effort, and is organized by dedicated folks
from projects such as OpenStack, Xen Project, KubeVirt, QEMU, KVM, and
Foreman. We would like to invite all those who are involved in these fields
to submit your proposals by December 8th, 2023.

About the Devroom

The Virtualization & IaaS devroom will feature session topics such as open
source hypervisors or virtual machine managers such as Xen Project, KVM,
bhyve and VirtualBox as well as Infrastructure-as-a-Service projects such
as KubeVirt, Apache CloudStack, OpenStack, QEMU and OpenNebula.

This devroom will host presentations that focus on topics of shared
interest, such as KVM; libvirt; shared storage; virtualized networking;
cloud security; clustering and high availability; interfacing with multiple
hypervisors; hyperconverged deployments; and scaling across hundreds or
thousands of servers.

Presentations in this devroom will be aimed at developers working on these
platforms who are looking to collaborate and improve shared infrastructure
or solve common problems. We seek topics that encourage dialog between
projects and continued work post-FOSDEM.
