will have to be 8 slots of 20 minutes (with 5 minutes of setup, and 5
mins of Q&A) on half an hour boundaries.
Submission deadline is the 10th of december, but do not count on this
date, once the schedule has filled with enough solid talks, we will
accept no more.

If there are any issues, just email graphics-devroom-manager at fosdem.org,
where you can reach the team of graphics devroom managers, Pierre

and review your talk submissions.
We will be keeping a keen eye on submissions and scheduling, and hope to
see you all at FOSDEM.
