Hey all,

The Open Media devroom returns at FOSDEM 2024, and we are looking for
propositions of talks and panels. FOSDEM is one of the largest (8,000+
hackers!) gatherings of Free and Open Source Software contributors in
the world and happens every February in Brussels (Belgium, Europe).

This year, the Open Media devroom will take place in-person on:
Sunday, February 4th, 2024.

# About the Open Media devroom

The Open Media room will focus on all Free & Open Source media
projects, including software and hardware, spanning from building
audio & video applications, through standards, formats, codecs, video
analytics and search to Web video, IPTV, broadcasting and radio
practices and much more. If you're interested in video, image or audio
technologies, and the breadth of available open source technologies
and communities for media - the Open Media room is for you!
