Hi everyone,

I'm happy to share the call for participation for Collaboration and
Content Management Devroom for FOSDEM 2024.

The main goal of this devroom is to discuss and present new software,
tools, techniques, and methods when it comes to building Open Source
software for collaboration. Over the past years, with challenges on EU
digital sovereignty following COVID, the ecosystem of Open Source
collaborative tools has seen a significant growth. This has uncovered
new areas of discussion and challenges that fit the scope of FOSDEM :

* Protocols for interoperability between collaboration platforms
* Empowering users with new ways to collaborate securely (zero
knowledge collaboration, sovereignty)
* Technical solutions to provide support for multiple collaboration
platforms to work together

This year, we are looking for contributions under the form of
conferences, talks, or discussions covering one of the topics above,
or any of the following :

* New projects presentation
* Self-hosted platforms
* Secure collaboration
* Collaborative applications
* Connectors & Integrations
* Knowledge management techniques
* Protocols for collaboration
* …

2024 will also be the 5th anniversary of the devroom. As for the
previous years, we hope to provide an opportunity for everyone to meet
and exchange about collaborative issues encountered while using Open
Source solutions ; present some tools used for content management and
discuss global solutions for incentivizing collaboration.

Submission process
