                         Call for Presentations

                 8th Ada Developer Room at FOSDEM 2018

              Saturday 3 February 2018, Brussels, Belgium

http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/~dirk/ada-belgium/events/18/180203-fosdem.html

                Organized in cooperation with Ada-Europe

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ada-Belgium [1] is pleased to announce that there will be a one-day Ada
Developer Room on Saturday 3 February 2018 at FOSDEM 2018 in Brussels,
Belgium.  This Ada DevRoom is once more organized in cooperation with
Ada-Europe [2].

General Information
-------------------
FOSDEM [3], the Free and Open source Software Developers' European
Meeting, is a free and non-commercial two-day weekend event organized
early each year in Brussels, Belgium.  It is highly developer-oriented
and brings together 8000+ participants from all over the world.
No registration is necessary.

The goal is to provide open source developers and communities a
place to meet with other developers and projects, to be informed
about the latest developments in the open source world, to attend
interesting talks and presentations on various topics by open source
project leaders and committers, and to promote the development and
the benefits of open source solutions.

Ada Programming Language and Technology
---------------------------------------
Awareness of safety and security issues in software systems is
increasing.  Multi-core platforms are now abundant.  These are some
of the reasons that the Ada programming language and technology
attracts more and more attention, among others due to Ada's support
for programming by contract and for multi-core targets.  The Ada 2012
language definition was approved and published by ISO in December 2012,
updated early 2016, and work on new features for the next revision
is ongoing.  More and more tools are available, many are open source,
including for small and recent platforms.  Interest keeps increasing,
also in the open source community, and many exciting projects started.

Ada Developer Room
------------------
FOSDEM is an ideal fit for Ada developers to meet.  On the one hand,
it gives the general open source community an opportunity to see what
is happening in the Ada community and how Ada technology can help to
produce reliable and efficient open source software.  On the other
hand, it gives open source Ada projects an opportunity to present
themselves, get feedback and ideas, and attract participants to their
project and collaboration between projects.

At previous FOSDEM events, Ada-Belgium has organized very well
attended Ada Developer Rooms, offering a full day program in 2006
[4], a two-day program in 2009 [5], and full day programs in 2012 [6],
2013 [7], 2014 [8], 2015 [9], and 2016 [10].  An important goal is to
present exciting Ada technology and projects also to people outside
the traditional Ada community.

Our proposal for another dedicated Ada DevRoom was accepted, and now
work continues to prepare the detailed program.  We most probably
will have a total of 8 schedulable hours between 11:00 and 19:00 in
a room which accommodates 76 participants.  More information will be
posted on the dedicated web-page on the Ada-Belgium site [11], and
final announcements will of course also be sent to various forums,
lists and newsgroups.

Call for Presentations
----------------------
We would like to schedule technical presentations, tutorials, demos,
live performances, project status reports, discussions, etc, in the
Ada Developer Room.

Ada-Belgium calls on you to:
- inform us at [log in to unmask] about specific
  presentations you would like to hear in this Ada DevRoom;
- for bonus points, subscribe to the Ada-FOSDEM mailing list [12]
  to discuss and help organize the details;
- for more bonus points, be a speaker: the Ada-FOSDEM mailing list
  is the place to be!

Do you have a talk you want to give?
Do you have a project you would like to present?
Would you like to get more people involved with your project?

We're inviting proposals that are related to Ada software
development, and include a technical oriented discussion.
You're not limited to slide presentations, of course.
Be creative.  Propose something fun to share with people
so they might feel some of your enthusiasm for Ada!

Speaking slots are 20 or 45 minutes, plus 5 minutes for Q&A.
Depending on interest, we might also have a session with lightning
presentations (e.g. 5 minutes each).

Note that all talks will be streamed live (audio+video) and recorded,
for remote as well as later viewing of talks, and so that people can
watch streams in the hallways when rooms are full.  By submitting
a proposal, you agree to being recorded and streamed, and agree the
content of your talk will be published under the same license as all
FOSDEM content, a Creative Commons (CC-BY) license.

Submission Guidelines
---------------------
Subscribe to the Ada-FOSDEM mailing list [12], and submit
your proposal there.  If needed, feel free to contact us at
[log in to unmask]

Please include:
- your name, affiliation, contact info;
- the title of your talk (be descriptive and creative);
- a short descriptive and attractive abstract;
- potentially pointers to more information;
- a short bio and photo.

See programs of previous Ada DevRooms (URLs below) for presentation
examples, as well as for the kind of info we need.

We'd like to put together a draft schedule by early December.  So,
please act ASAP, and definitely by November 26, 2017 at the latest.

We look forward to lots of feedback and proposals!
