Travel assistance

Please note that as this is a community conference with a very tight
budget, we cannot cover any travel or lodging costs.

Recording of talks

The FOSDEM organizers plan to have live streaming and recording fully
working, both for remote/later viewing of talks, and so that people
can watch streams in the hallways when rooms are full. This requires
speakers to consent to being recorded and streamed. By submitting an
event, you give consent for you, your talk, and your content to be
recorded and streamed. You also agree to share your slides in PDF and
optionally other formats. The recordings will be published under the
same license as all FOSDEM content (CC-BY).

Code of Conduct

We follow FOSDEM’s CoC: https://fosdem.org/2023/practical/conduct/. We
also request respect towards the speakers, especially quiet entry/exit
by attendees so that Q&A can run in parallel. If a question is
repurposed for commentary, we will shut it down.

In short: Be excellent to each other

Richard “RichiH” Hartmann
