> Hi,
> 
> The Hardware Enablement devroom is back for a second year at FOSDEM!
> It will take place on Sunday 3 February 2019.
> 
> # Call for Participation
> 
> We are opening the call for participation to our devroom, with the
> deadline for talk proposals set to Saturday 1 December 2018.
> 
> # Devroom Scope
> 
> This devroom covers topics related to hardware support and enablement
> with free software. It includes the following topics:
> * peripheral/controller firmwares
> * boot software
> * kernel drivers and hardware interfaces
> * hardware-related adaptation in operating systems
> * tools for firmware flashing
> * tools for low-level development
> 
> Despite this large scope, the focus of the devroom is set on
> highlighting the technical aspects of the hardware and its enablement
> in free projects, rather than the specific applications and use cases
> that benefit from it. We also want to avoid purely commercial vague
> talks with marketing content, which leave little place to technical
> aspects.
> 
> This year, we are looking to particularly highlighting free software
> outside of the operating system boundaries, especially with boot
> software as well as controller and peripheral firmwares.
> 
> # Talk Format
> 
> Since no Embedded devroom is taking place this year (and our devroom
> also covers embedded devices), we are expecting a significant number of
> submissions.
> 
> In order to cover as much ground as we can, a new talk will be
> scheduled every half-hour, so accepted talks will follow this format:
> 
> 20 minutes for the talk
> + 5 minutes for questions
> + 5 minutes for speaker setup
> 
> We ask speakers to be present in the room before their talk so that
> speaker setup can go smoothly.
> 
> # Submission
> 
> Talks that fit in our devroom's scope can be submitted to the FOSDEM
> Pentabarf interface at https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM19
> 
> We encourage reusing accounts from previous years instead of creating
> new ones:
> * lost password: https://penta.fosdem.org/user/forgot_password
> * new Account: https://penta.fosdem.org/user/new_account/FOSDEM19
> 
> Here are a few guidelines when submitting a talk:
> * select the Hardware Enablement devroom as track
> * include an abstract for every submission and optionally a full
>  description
> * make sure your contact details are up to date
> 
> # Video
> 
> Talks will be streamed live during the event and recorded. They will be
> available under a Creative Commons Attribution (BY) license later.

> # Contact

> For more information or questions about the devroom and this CFP, feel
> free to email hardware-devroom-manager at fosdem.org
> 
> We're looking forward to lots of interesting proposals and hoping to
> see you all in Brussels at the event!
