FOSDEM 2023 - Call for Talks

Hello fellow Mozillians,

Next year we are back at FOSDEM in person!

FOSDEM is the largest European FLOSS event, and it will talk place on the 4th and 5th of February 2023 in Brussels. To learn more, please consult the website.

We are officially opening the call for talks for our Mozilla DevRoom. Mozilla has organized a DevRoom as FOSDEM for more than 20 years. A DevRoom is a self-organized space where we can present talks and discuss topics relevant to a specific topic/organization/community.

Please submit your talk proposal by the 5th of December 2022. We will let you know if your call has been accepted by the 12th of December.

Here is a list of topics, but feel free to deviate from them!

  • MDN Web Docs
  • Firefox in General
  • Privacy & Security
  • Future and emerging Mozilla Technologies
  • Add-ons
  • Localization
  • SUMO
  • Web Policies
  • Common Voice
  • Hubs

Selection criteria for talks will be based on:

● Relevance of the topic

● Relevance/Expertise of the speaker (however, first-timers are also welcome!)

● Description and details

Submit your proposal

Talks can be either in-person or online. Talks can be 15 to 45 minutes in duration (including Q&A).

You need to submit your proposal through pentabarf. If you already have an account, you should re-use it.

Please indicate:

  • DevRoom track: Mozilla
  • (On-line of in-person talk) Edited: In the DevRoom all calls should be in-person, so make sure you can make it to Brussels. (We might be able to have an on-line DevRoom with pre-recorded talks, but at the moment we cannot guarantee this. If you are only able to present online please make that clear, and we will get in touch)
  • First and Last Name / nickname
  • Short bio
  • Email address
  • Title and subtitle of the talk
  • Topic of the talk
  • Length of the talk
  • Short abstract

Also, feel free to add links to projects/previous calls / personal websites you think will be useful.

Community Participation Guidelines

As with all Mozilla spaces, the DevRoom will be governed by the Mozilla CPG. Please familiarize yourself with it before submitting the proposal.

(Inspiration for this call was taken by Michael’s last year call!)
