Call for talks (closed):
We aim at having a dozen or two short talks (ca. 20 min.) introducing projects, advertising brand new
features of established tools, discussing issues relevant to development of software for
scientific computing, and touching on the interdependence of FLOSS and open science.
We welcome contributions on topics such as number-crunching libraries, science-inclined
compilers and parallelisation techniques, data analysis environments, scientific file formats,
plotting/visualisation packages, licensing issues in science - anything that is relevant
to the development of FLOSS for scientists.
Please send your talk proposals by e-mail to foss4scientists-devroom(at)lists.fosdem.org providing
the following information:
The deadline is December 16th 2012.
The devroom schedule will be sent out to the aforementioned mailing list and posted here
about a week after the deadline.
- Your name
- A short curriculum vitae
- A title for the talk
