CALL FOR PAPERS

We are inviting proposals for talks about LibreOffice or the ODF
standard document format, on topics such as code, localization, QA, UX,
tools, extensions, migrations and general advocacy. Please keep in mind
that product pitches are not allowed at FOSDEM.

The length of talks is limited to a maximum of 25 minutes, as we would
like to have some minutes for questions after each presentation, and to
fit as many presenters as possible in the schedule. Exceptions must be
explicitly requested and justified. You may be assigned LESS time than
you request.

IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS

- Presentations have to be pre-recorded and tested for streaming before
the event.
- Once your talk is accepted, someone will help you to produce the
pre-recorded content.
- Contents will be reviewed to ensure they have the required quality,
and uploaded before January 15, to be prepared and ready for broadcast.
- During the stream of talks, speakers must be available online for the
Q/A session.

TALK SUBMISSIONS

All talk submissions have to be made in the Pentabarf event planning
tool: https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM21.

While filing the proposal, please provide the title of your talk, a
short abstract (one or two paragraphs), some information about yourself
(name, bio and photo, but please do remember that your profile might be
already stored in Pentabarf).

To submit your talk, click on “Create Event” and select the
“LibreOffice” DevRoom as the “Track”. Otherwise, your talk will not be
even considered for any devroom at all.

If you already have a Pentabarf account from a previous year, even if
your talk was not accepted, please reuse it. Create an account if, and
only if, you don’t have one from a previous year. If you have any issues
with Pentabarf, please contact italo@libreoffice.org for help.
