[FOSDEM] Call for Participation: Energy devroom
Hello everyone, As frequent FOSDEM visitors we are happy to announce the realisation of a long-held dream of hosting an Energy devroom at FOSDEM. By hosting a dedicated Energy devroom we will foster the diverse collaboration that is needed to successfully transform our energy systems. We hope you will take this chance to engage with the community and share your project, experience or thoughts. ## Call for participation We want your presentations related to energy systems and energy usage. Straight up project presentations are welcome but tangible applications and use-cases are preferred, so are stories & lessons for community building in the energy industry. We expect topics like scheduling energy consumption, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, metering and measuring systems, controlling microgrids, going off-grid and more. If you are unsure about what direction to take a topic, please reach out so we can assist you. Talks should be aimed at a technical audience, but should not assume that attendees are already familiar with your project or how it solves a given problem. Talk proposals may cover very specific solutions to a problem, or may be a higher level project overview for lesser known projects. Bound by the space limitations at FOSDEM we'll start the morning (10:30-14:30) with a virtual online devroom of pre-recorded talks. The afternoon (15:00-19:00) will be a physical devroom. Please feel free to suggest a duration between 20 minutes and 55 minutes but note that the final decision on talk durations will be made by the devroom administrators based on the number of received proposals. We may decide to give shorter slots so that more speakers can participate. As we need both physical talks and virtual pre-recorded talks you can indicate your preference in your submission. It is appreciated if you can provide us flexiblity in scheduling by selecting both options. ## Key dates * 3 December: CfP submission deadline * 16 December: Announcement of selected talks * 15 January: Pre-recorded virtual session videos to be delivered * 4 February: Energy devroom at FOSDEM - if applying for an in-person session, you must be available onsite to present your talk, if virtual you must be available for questions. All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC. ## Submission process Please submit your proposals at Penta https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM23 by the 3rd of December 2022, 23:59 UTC. If you already have an account from a previous year, you should reuse it so all recorded FOSDEM contributions are associated with your profile. When submitting your proposal (creating an 'event' in Pentabarf), select 'Energy devroom' from the track drop-down menu. You can indicate your preference for physical/virtual/either using the checkboxes at the bottom of the submission form. Write the desired duration (between 20 minutes and 55 minutes) including question into the proposal so we can take that into account when planning. We may decide to give shorter slots so that more speakers can participate. If you will not be present on the campus in Brussels for the whole event or wish to participate remotely, please also fill out the Availability tab (under Person) to indicate the hours during which your presentation can be scheduled taking into account your local time zone. For virtual talks, use the 'attachment' option to add the video file. If you run into issues with your submission, please reach out to us so we can assist you, or contact the program committee at program at fosdem.org ## Pre-recorded virtual talks If you get selected for a virtual talk, you are expected to hand in the video with the correct technical settings so FOSDEM can integrate it in their system. More information might be provided at a later stage, but for now the most current information can be found here: https://github.com/FOSDEM/video/wiki/FOSDEM-2021-video-email-to-speakers Please make sure you have the technical means to meet those requirements for the video file. Technical video support by the devroom managers is only provided to the best of our abilities. Accepted speakers will need to prepare, record and upload their presentation during the first two weeks of January. Speakers will need to be in a place with a computer with a reliable internet connection and camera and microphone when their talk is scheduled so they can join a video room and take questions and engage in discussion after their pre-recorded presentation is played. If you have a virtual talk and atend FOSDEM yourself we still expect you to find a quiet corner and be open to questions. ## Requirements The conference language is English. All content must relate to Free and Open Source Software. By participating in the event you agree to the publication of your recordings, slides and other content provided under the same licence as all FOSDEM content (CC-BY). By participating in FOSDEM you are required to adhere the Code of Conduct: https://fosdem.org/2023/practical/conduct/ ## Please consider volunteering Regardless if you submit a talk, please consider volunteering if you plan on attending the devroom. Every small contribution counts, even just half an hour, so if you want to help make our devroom a success, please let us know so we can stay in touch and plan. ## Energy devroom managers Current Devroom managers are Nicolas Höning, Kai-Uwe Hermann and Nico Rikken. You can use the dedicated email address to contact us: energy-devroom-manager at fosdem.org Hope to see you at the Energy Devroom! Best, Nico Rikken
