FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2017.
What we are looking for
Through FOSSMeet, we intend to get the attendees, mostly students, get started with the development and usage of free software. You may propose to conduct a lecture, demo, tutorial, workshop, discussion or panel at FOSSMeet. If the contents of your session is the ‘I am feeling lucky’ result of some Google search, there is low probability that it’ll be accepted. Same applies to proposals titled ‘The absolute beginner introduction to X’ and others on a similar line. On the other hand, if your talk is on some obscure, albeit important, free software project that will go over most students head, this might not be the best platform to deliver that talk. There are always exceptions and we leave that to your judgement. If our audience wants it, we’ll try our best to accommodate it. Of course, if you find people interested in your proposal, you can always call a BoF. We are all for BoF’s! :)
Take the above with a pinch of salt. They are no s̶t̶r̶i̶c̶t̶ ̶r̶u̶l̶e̶s̶, only guidelines. All your proposals are welcome and we celebrate every single one that we receive! :D Looking forward to see you folks here.
Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.
Call for proposals opens: Oct 27, 2016
Proposal submission deadline: Jan 15, 2017
Proposal acceptance: Jan 20, 2017
Presentation upload: Feb 15, 2017

DeepRust - DeepLearning using Rust
DeepRust is an Open Project with an vision of creating a deeplearning crate in rust to provide great experience to researchers & developers to develop learning algorithms and architecture in rust-lang.
Why Rust ?
Rust being blazingly faster, supporting parallelism and providing high compilation safety is an ideal language for real time data analysis.
This talk will mainly focus on how rust can be used in the field of machine learning and deep drive into parallelism features of rust.
DeepRust is the first deeplearning crate and has a lot of potential to become a great package for deeplearning researcher, as its been build by community feedbacks.
- What is an Open Project ?
- Introduction to Rust and its feature
- What is deeplearning ?
- Mathematical components
- Create a simple model using DeepRust
- Contribute to DeepRust Open Project
