FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2023.
At FOSSMeet, we allow the attendees(mostly students) to delve into the field of development and free software. We’re inviting proposals for lectures, demos, tutorials, workshops, discussions, and panels for FOSSMeet’23. Separate proposals will be taken for 45 minute sessions by professionals and 15 minute talks by students. This year, however, upvotes will not be considered in the selection procedure.
Fair warning - if the contents of your session is the ‘I am feeling lucky’ result of a Google search, there is little probability of it being accepted. Same applies to proposals titled ‘The absolute beginner introduction to X’ and others of the like. On the other hand, if your talk is on some obscure, albeit important, free software project that will go over the heads of most students, this might not be the best platform to deliver your talk. There are always exceptions and we leave that to your judgement.
However, we welcome and celebrate every single proposal we receive. Do treat the above as guidelines rather than rules. Looking forward to your suggestions and seeing you folks at FOSSMeet’23!
Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.

Proposal submission deadline: Jan 26, 2023
Proposal acceptance: Jan 29, 2023
Presentation upload: Feb 3, 2023
