                        Preliminary Announcement

                 3rd Ada Developer Room at FOSDEM 2012

                   4 February 2012, Brussels, Belgium

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

We are pleased to announce that there will be a one-day Ada Developer
Room on Saturday 4 February 2012 at FOSDEM 2012 in Brussels, Belgium.

FOSDEM [1], the Free and Open source Software Developers' European
Meeting, is a free and non-commercial two-day event organized each
February in Brussels, Belgium.

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

At previous FOSDEM events, Ada-Belgium [2] has organized some very
well attended Ada Developer Rooms, offering a full day program in 2006
[3] and a two-day program in 2009 [4].  One of our important goals
is to present Ada also to people outside the traditional Ada community.

Our proposal for another dedicated Ada DevRoom was accepted recently,
and now work will continue to prepare the detailed program.  We most
probably will have a total of 8 schedulable hours between 10:30
and 18:30.  More information will be posted later on a dedicated
web-page on the Ada-Belgium site, and final announcements will of
course also be sent to various lists and newsgroups.

Although we already have many potential speakers and presentations
(see our proposal from last year [5]) Ada-Belgium calls on you to:
- inform us at [log in to unmask] about specific
  presentations you would like to hear in an Ada DevRoom;
- for bonus points, subscribe to the Ada-FOSDEM mailing list [6]
  to discuss and help organize the details;
- for more bonus points, be a speaker: the Ada-FOSDEM mailing list
  is the place to be!

We look forward to lots of feedback!  Please act ASAP.

For the FOSDEM Team of Ada-Belgium,

Dirk
