Call for Participation

This is the call for participation in the FOSDEM 2024 devroom on Collaboration and Content Management, to be held on Saturday, February 3rd 2024 at the ULB Solbosch Campus, in Brussels, Belgium.

The main goal of this devroom is to discuss and present new software, tools, techniques, and methods when it comes to building Open Source software for collaboration. Over the past years, with challenges on EU digital sovereignty following COVID, the ecosystem of Open Source collaborative tools has seen a significant growth. This has uncovered new areas of discussion and challenges that fit the scope of FOSDEM :

  • Protocols for interoperability between collaboration platforms
  • Empowering users with new ways to collaborate securely (zero knowledge collaboration, sovereignty)
  • Technical solutions to provide support for multiple collaboration platforms to work together

This year, we are looking for contributions under the form of conferences, talks, or discussions covering one of the topics above, or any of the following :

  • New projects presentation
  • Self-hosted platforms
  • Secure collaboration
  • Collaborative applications
  • Connectors & Integrations
  • Knowledge management techniques
  • Protocols for collaboration

2024 will also be the 5th anniversary of the devroom. As for the previous years, we hope to provide an opportunity for everyone to meet and exchange about collaborative issues encountered while using Open Source solutions ; present some tools used for content management and discuss global solutions for incentivizing collaboration.
