We are pleased to announce the Call for Participation for the  FOSDEM 2024 (On-campus) Network 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 and telemetry)
   - Network management (enterprise, carrier-grade, cloud, IoT)
   - Networking protocols (the full alphabet soup)
   - Cybersecurity (IPS, IDS, Deep-Packet Inspection)
   - Development tools (libraries, SDKs, plugins)
   - Network stacks

Suggested Topics

If it moves network packets, monitors, or interacts with, or supervises entities that move 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     CheckMK, collectd, Icinga2, Naemon, ntopng 
   Frameworks  DPDK, eBPF, FD.io, PF_RING, XDP
   Switching      FastClick, Open vSwitch, Snabb
   Stacks          BSD, F-Stack, Linux
   Container      CNI, Cilium, Docker, Falco, Kubernetes
   Routing         BIRD, FRRouting, Go-BGP
   Security         nDPI, OPNsense, Snort, Suricata, Wazuh, Zeek
   Scanning       nmap, OpenVAS, zmap
   Peer-to-peer DHTs, Gossip, hole punching
   Tooling         Moongen, Scapy, TRex, VSPerf, Warp17
   Telcos          free5GC, Kamailio, Magma Core, Nephio, Osmocom

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.
