FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2019.
What we are looking for
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‘19. Separate proposals will be taken for one-hour sessions by professionals and thirty-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‘19!
Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.
Call for proposals opens: Dec 4, 2018
Proposal submission deadline: Jan 18, 2019
Proposal acceptance: Jan 24, 2019
Presentation upload: Feb 3, 2019

I combine my 14+ years of professional system design and development experience along with Design Thinking, System Design and Engineering, Social Engineering, Change Management, Team Building, Mentorship and Training. My main focus is on how we can be better technical and social leaders, engineers and developers by focusing on learning the skills and deeper part engineering and sciences, and skills most of ignore - understanding of community and users. In design thinking, I generally reason things w.r.t. big picture, what should we solve and most important what problems we should not solve. Most of the time early learners generally waste there vital time in solving problems which are not worth to solve, or solve same kind of problems again and again… As a mentor, I love to contribute at these aspect more…
I have consulted, performed trainings, workshops and designed and developed systems for clients in various sectors. Technology in all its forms is part of my makeup and so I think, code, speak, train and make people awesome in there vision and mission. I am strong proponent of Freedom, Openness, Scalability and Sustainability in System Design and Engineering.
I was leading contributor in making and evolving FOSSMeet@NITC in early phases. I lead FOSSMeet 2006 and FOSSMeet 2007 along with wonderful energetic, diverse and vibrant team coming from multiple departments, areas, student clubs, community and industry. We made FOSSMeet@NITC 2nd largest after FOSS.IN, Bangalore, just in 3 years… Let’s meet, share and explore more during 15th edition of FOSSMeet@NITC 2019… and make it awesome…
