The organisers of the RISC-V Devroom at the FOSDEM 2020 conference, taking place in Brussels this coming February, have opened the call for talk proposals.

“FOSDEM 2020 will take place on February 1-2, 2020 in Brussels, Belgium. There will be a half day RISC-V developer’s room on February 1st (Saturday),” writes Arun Thomas in a message to the RISC-V Foundation’s software mailing list. “The topic of the devroom encompasses the RISC-V ISA, open source RISC-V hardware (e.g. cores, SoCs, accelerators), and open source RISC-V software (e.g. OS ports, emulators).

“The default duration for talks will be 45 minutes including discussion. Feel free to request a longer or shorter slot. Presentations will be recorded and streamed. Sending your proposal implies giving permission to have your presentation recorded and distributed under a Creative Commons CC-BY licence.”

Those interested in participating are requested to submit a title, subtitle, one-paragraph abstract and optional more detailed description via the event website no later than the 24th of November. Full details on FOSDEM 2020 itself, meanwhile, can be found on the official website.
