Might fit for our topic to attract more interested people,
but I personally have no plans to go to FOSDEM.

> Hi,
> At FOSDEM on saturday the 1st of february 2020, there will be another 
> graphics DevRoom. URL: https://fosdem.org/2020/
> The focus of this DevRoom is:
> * Graphics drivers: from display to media to 3d drivers, both in 
> bootloaders, kernel or userspace. Be it part of DRM, KMS, V4L, 
> (direct)FB, Xorg, Mesa...
> * Input drivers: kernel and userspace.
> * Windowing systems: X, Wayland, Mir, directFB, ...
> * Even colour management, low level toolkit stuff, and other areas which 
> i might have overlooked above are accepted.
> Slots will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis. The best 
> slots will go to those who apply the earliest. We have the devroom from 
> 10:30 til 19:00, giving us 8h30, so eight 50 minute talks and one 20 
> minute talk are available.
> Talk Submission:
> ----------------
> The venerable pentabarf system will once again be used for talk 
> submission.
> https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM20
> Remember that FOSDEM is a huge, and tightly organized event with 10+k 
> visitors, full livestreaming, and a booklet which holds the schedule. So 
> put some effort in your talk submission and details, especially since 
> the schedule gets locked down well before the event starts.
> Since this an open source community event, please refrain from turning 
> in a talk that is purely corporate or a product commercial. Also, this 
> is a highly technical devroom on a conference aimed at developers and 
> advanced users, so only submit a talk on a subject you actually are 
> involved with. Finally, if you are unsure whether you can come or not 
> (this is FOSDEM, why are you not there anyway?), wait with submitting 
> your talk until you know for sure.
> When in pentabarf, spend some time on the abstract and description, for 
> both the event and the speaker. The abstract should be a shortened 
> description, and the event abstract will sometimes even be printed 
> directly in the booklet. BUT, on the website the abstract is  
> immediately followed by the full description. If your abstract is fully 
> descriptive, while terse, you might get away with just the abstract.
> Talks are either 50 minutes or 20 minutes long, plus 5 minutes for 
> questions.
> All talks will be recorded, and will be streamed out live, and will 
> later be made available as CC-BY, sometimes minutes after your talk has 
> finished.
> As for deadlines, the fosdem organizers want to have a finished schedule 
> by the 15th of december. Don't count on this deadline: first come first 
> serve! The worst slots will be assigned to those who come last, which 
> could be pretty dire given that there is the traditional FOSDEM beer 
> event the night before ;)
