[Xen-devel] CfP: Virtualisation and IaaS DevRoom at FOSDEM'14 (ends December 1st, 2013)


Call for Participation

The scope for this devroom is open source, openly-developed projects in the areas of virtualisation and IaaS type clouds, ranging from low level to data center, up to cloud management platforms and cloud resource orchestration.

Sessions should always target a developer audience. Bonus points for collaborative sessions that would be appealing to developers from multiple projects.

We are particularly interested in the following themes:

  • low level virtualisation aspects

  • new features in classic and container-based virtualisation technologies

  • new use cases for virtualisation, such as virtualisation in mobile, automotive and embedded in general

  • other resource virtualisation technologies: networking, storage, …

  • deep technical dives into specific IaaS or virtualisation management projects features

  • relationship between IaaS projects and specific dependencies (not just virtualisation)

  • integration and development leveraging solutions from multiple projects

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: Sunday, December 1st, 2013

  • Acceptance notifications: Sunday, December 15th, 2013

  • Final schedule announcement: Friday January 10th, 2014

  • Devroom @ FOSDEM'14: February 1st & 2nd, 2014
