                         Call for Presentations

                 6th Ada Developer Room at FOSDEM 2015

              Saturday 31 January 2015, Brussels, Belgium


                Organized in cooperation with Ada-Europe


Ada-Belgium [1] is pleased to announce that there will be a one-day Ada
Developer Room on Saturday 31 January 2015 at FOSDEM 2015 in Brussels,
Belgium.  This Ada DevRoom is once more organized in cooperation with
Ada-Europe [2].

General Information
FOSDEM [3], the Free and Open source Software Developers' European
Meeting, is a free and non-commercial two-day weekend event organized
early each year in Brussels, Belgium.  It is highly developer-oriented
and brings together 5000+ participants from all over the world.
No registration is necessary.

The goal is to provide open source developers and communities a
place to meet with other developers and projects, to be informed
about the latest developments in the open source world, to attend
interesting talks and presentations on various topics by open source
project leaders and committers, and to promote the development and
the benefits of open source solutions.

Ada Developer Room
At previous FOSDEM events, Ada-Belgium has organized very well attended
Ada Developer Rooms, offering a full day program in 2006 [4], a two-day
program in 2009 [5], and full day programs in 2012 [6], 2013 [7] and
2014 [8].  An important goal is to present exciting Ada technology
and projects also to people outside the traditional Ada community.

Our proposal for another dedicated Ada DevRoom was accepted, and now
work continues to prepare the detailed program.  We most probably
will have a total of 8 schedulable hours between 10:00 and 18:00 in
a room which holds some 60 participants.  More information will be
posted on the dedicated web-page on the Ada-Belgium site [9], and
final announcements will of course also be sent to various forums,
lists and newsgroups.

Call for Presentations
Ada-Belgium calls on you to:
- inform us at ada-belgium-board at cs.kuleuven.be about specific
  presentations you would like to see in this Ada DevRoom;
- for bonus points, subscribe to the Ada-FOSDEM mailing list [9]
  to discuss and help organize the details;
- for more bonus points, be a speaker: the Ada-FOSDEM mailing list
  is the place to be!

Do you have a talk you want to give?
Do you have a project you would like to present?
Would you like to get more people involved with your project?

We're inviting proposals that are related to Ada software
development, and include a technical oriented discussion.
You're not limited to slide presentations, of course.
Be creative.  Propose something fun to share with people
so they might feel some of your enthusiasm for Ada!

Speaking slots are 25 or 50 minutes, including Q&A.  Depending on
interest, we might also have a session with lightning presentations
(e.g. 5 minutes each).

We'd like to put together a draft schedule early December.  So,
please act ASAP, and definitely by November 30, 2014 at the latest.

We look forward to lots of feedback and proposals!
