FOSDEM is one of the largest gatherings of Free Software
contributors in the world and happens each February in Brussels
(Belgium). One of the tracks will be the CrossDesktop DevRoom, which
will host Desktop-related talks.

We are now inviting proposals for talks about Free/Libre/Open-source Software
on the topics of Desktop development, Desktop applications and interoperativity
amongst Desktop Environments. This is a unique opportunity to show novel ideas
and developments to a wide technical audience.

Topics accepted include, but are not limited to: Enlightenment, Gnome,
KDE, XFCE, Windows, Mac OS X, general desktop matters, applications that enhance
desktops and web (when related to desktop).

Talks can be very specific, such as developing mobile applications
with Qt Quick; or as general as predictions for the fusion of Desktop
and web in 5 years time. Topics that are of interest to the users and
developers of all desktop
environments are especially welcome. The FOSDEM 2011 schedule might
give you some inspiration:

Please include the following information when submitting a proposal:
your name, the title of your talk (please be descriptive, as titles
will be listed with around 250 from other projects) and a short
abstract of one or two paragraphs.

The deadline for submissions is December 20th 2011. FOSDEM will be held
on the weekend of 4-5 February 2012. Please submit your proposals to:
