Call for Proposals

Our call for proposals has begun!

We had over 15 tracks proposed by our incredible community, so now we want to hear from you about how you fit into the mix! While our tracks set the stage for the tone and overall character of the conference, there are plenty of talks we've seen in the community that don't fit neatly into any specific one of them. In that case, we'd love to see the ways you and your community collaborate, use, build free software, and even ideas outside free software that you think a broader audience could benefit from!

The tracks are:

Whether you have a talk about the history of software patents, a technical dive into CAD software your makerspace uses, or ways your intentional community has setup it's garden using open hardware and software to manage you beans, we'd love to hear from you.

And a reminder that FOSSY will require all use of proprietary software to be indicated on slides and any physical materials present. We think it's important for the conference to be as FOSS focused as possible and this reversal of assumption that any software mentioned is FOSS by default, is our way to handling this.

How to propose a talk

  1. Sign-up and complete your speaker profile. You can always come back and update your profile later.
  2. Visit the Dashboard and under "New Proposal", select the track you'd like to participate in. Then complete the details of your proposal.

The volunteer track organisers and Software Freedom Conservancy staff will review your proposal and get back to you after the Call for Proposals has closed.

Our CFP will remain open until May 18th and we hope to hear from you.
