Dear friends and colleagues,

next year's FOSDEM (the free and open source developer's meeting in
Brussels, Europe) will feature a new track on Software Defined Radio.
Therefore, we invite developers and users from the free software radio
community and to join us for this track and present your talks or demos.

Software Radio has become an important tool to allow anyone access the
EM spectrum. Using free software radio libraries and applications and
cheap hardware, anyone can now start hacking on wireless communications,
remote sensing, radar or other applications. At FOSDEM, we hope to
network all these projects and improve collaboration, bring new ideas
forward and get more people involved.

The track's web site resides at:
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/FOSDEM14

Here, we will publish updates and the final schedule.

** Submit your presentations

To suggest a talk, go to https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM14
and follow the instructions. You need to create an 'Event'; make sure
it's in the Software Defined Radio track! Lengths aren't fixed, but give
a realistic estimate and please don't exceed 30 minutes unless you have
something special planned (in that case, contact one of us). Also, don't
forget to include time for Q&A.
Typical slot lengths would be 30 Minutes including QA.

You aren't limited to slide presentations, of course. Be creative.
However, FOSDEM is an open source conference, therefore we ask you to
stay clear of marketing presentations. Of course, we like nitty-gritty
technical stuff.

We will reserve time to simply hack, it won't all be talks.

** Important Dates

FOSDEM is February 1st & 2nd 2014.

* December 1st 2013: Submission Deadline
* December 20th 2013: Speaker Notification
* January 10th 2014: Announcement of final schedule
* February 2nd 2014: SDR Track

** Steering Committee

The track committee consists of:
* Philipp Balister (OpenEmbedded / OpenSDR)
* Martin Braun (GNU Radio)
* Sylvain Munaut (OsmoCom)


Hope to hear of you soon!

Martin

To anyone attending FOSDEM:

We need volunteers to handle our A/V setup, so that we can record videos
of the talks. FOSDEM guys will provide all the hardware and do a short
tutorial on how to use it.
So if you're interested in the SDR talks anyway, you'd be doing us a
huge favour if you help us with this.

If you're interested, contact me off-list. More people is better than
fewer.

Cheers,
Martin

Hi guys,

once again, I'd like to invite everyone to submit presentations!
We are very open to anything you have, and the slots don't have fixed
lengths, so be it short or long, tutorial or presentation, come and
participate!

Quick reminder: FOSDEM is a "free software" happening in Brussels,
Belgium. It's February 1st and 2nd, and it's free (although you'll have
to pay your own beers).

So have you...
- Made something cool with SDRs?
- Hacked wireless telecommunications?
- Used SDR sensors for something new and awesome?
- Some random project?

We are looking to get a diversity of talks, ranging from signal
processing, SDR hardware, projects, out-of-tree modules...

Also, to make sure this is not misunderstood: This is *not* solely a GNU
Radio event. We are looking to mix people from different projects, and
bring FLOSS devs together from all over the world.

Since I've been getting lots of questions regarding this, here's the
FAQ:

* What do I have to submit?

For the CfP deadline (1.12.) we only need a short abstract, a title and
an approx. duration (usually 30 mins). Basically, we need to know who's
definitely coming and what they're talking about, so we can make a nice
schedule, perhaps group the presentations by subject etc.

This takes about 5 Minutes, as we don't need any slides etc. right now.
(But you have to sign up to Pentabarf).

* What kind of presentation are you expecting?

We're very open here. Most of the presentations will probably be along
the lines of "here's cool project X I've been working on", which is
great. We want to see lots of different cool projects X, Y and Z!

However, if you want do do a tutorial, a group experiment etc., why not?
Or a contest? Perhaps contact us outside of Pentabarf if it's too funky.

* Relevant dates?

CfP deadline is December 1st, Notification December 20th and the actual
track is February 2nd.
