Previous year | FOSSMeet 2013

February 22 - 24, 2013 | NIT Calicut

FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2013. To participate as a delegate, you can get tickets your here.

What we are looking for

Through FOSSMeet, we intend to get the attendees, mostly students, get started with the development and usage of free software. You may propose to conduct a lecture, demo , tutorial, workshop, discussion or panel at FOSSMeet. If the contents of your session is the 'I am feeling lucky' result of some Google search, there is low probability that it'll be accepted. Same applies to proposals titled 'The absolute beginner introduction to X' and others on a similar line. On the other hand if your talk is on some obscure, albeit important, free software project that will go over most students head, this might not be the best platform to deliver that talk. There are always exceptions and we leave that to your judgement. If our audience wants it, we'll try our best to accommodate it. Of course, if you find people interested in your proposal, you can always call a BoF. We are all for BoF's! :)

Take the above with a pinch of salt. They are s̶t̶r̶i̶c̶t̶ ̶r̶u̶l̶e̶s̶ only guidelines. All your proposals are welcome and we celebrate every single one that we receive! :D Looking forward to see you guys here. Oh, and did we mention that we have a Mini DebConf at FOSSMeet this year? No? Go check it out.

Audience

Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.
