FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2020.

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‘20. Separate proposals will be taken for one-hour sessions by professionals and thirty-minute talks by students. 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. 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‘20!

Note : Along with your proposal, you must send a 7-10 minute demo video (or a link to video) on any topic of your choice to us at speakers@fossmeet.in. Visit speakers.fossmeet.in for more details.
