Hi all,

Like every year at FOSDEM we want to give embedded developers a chance
to present their projects or work to other developers, solicit
co-operation and in general make sure you can meet in real life.

So anybody which has an non-commercial project he wants to present, or
developers who would want to enlighten other developers about certain
technical matters, the following might be of interest to you:

CALL FOR PAPERS for the 6th EMBEDDED track at FOSDEM 2009
=========================================================

sat 7 - sun 8 February 2009, Brussels

Call for papers
----------------

The 2009 edition of FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Developers' European
Meeting; http://www.fosdem.org) will take place in Brussels, Belgium 
on 7 and 8 February 2009. For the seventh time, a track on Embedded 
Systems and Operating Systems will be organized. The sixth edition 
was quite succesful and attracted up to 150 attendants for certain
topics.

For last year's program see:

The use of Free Software in the infrastructure of Embedded Systems 
is booming, e.g. by the use of Linux, uClinux, eCos, RedBoot, RTEMS 
and many other Free Software components. More companies are supporting
Embedded Free Software every day because of the reliability and cheap
licensing. This can be confirmed from looking at some high profile
releases of embedded GNU/Linux systems. Some examples are the Nokia
N810,
Android based smartphones, camera's and televisions. Not to 
forget the popular TomTom navigation system, the numerous SOHO routers 
and NAS devices based on linux.

Operating System development has always been a very important topic in
Free Software.
As embedded and real-time systems typically have special OS
requirements, we organise this Free Embedded and OS development track at
FOSDEM to give people the opportunity to present their (or their teams)
achievements.

This track at FOSDEM provides a remarkable opportunity to present and
discuss the ongoing work in these areas, and we invite developers to 
present their current projects. Technical topics of the conference 
include but are not limited to :

* OS Development : kernel architecture and implementation, libraries,
power 
   management, TIPC, boot time and memory usage optimizations
  (e.g. Linux, BSD, uClinux, uClibc, newlib, slob allocator,...)

* Practical experiences in implementing Free Software in embedded
  systems  (e.g. reverse engineering, porting  to (and adapting of)
  commercial devices like the PSP, linksys WRT54G, nlsu2, Apple IPhone )

* Toolchain, performance testing and build environment 
  (e.g. crosstool, emdebian, openembedded, PTX dist, packaging,
scratchbox, Eclipse, Valgrind,...)

* GUIs for embedded systems
  (Gtk, Qt-(embedded), GPE, Qtopia, UI design with touchscreen, 
   Hildon GUI extensions, OpenMoko, OpenGL ES, ...)

* Multimedia applications for embedded systems
  (e.g. integer only decoders, Opieplayer, gstreamer... )

* Real-time extensions, nanokernels and hardware virtualization software
  (e.g. Xenomai, Adeos, KURT, L4, Qemu, ...)
 
* Hard real-time OS's
  (eCos, RTEMS, Real Time Linux,...)

* Open hardware, DSP, softcores and general hardware management
  (e.g opencores.org, Beagleboard, leonSparc, FPGA's, Arduino,
   specific design restrictions for free systems, DSP, Power
management...)

* Safety and security certifications applied to Free software
   (e.g. security measures in Embedded systems, TPM, SELinux
    for embedded, TrustZone, ...)

* Tools and techniques for programming multicore systems

* Free software licenses and embedded systems

Authors that wish to present a topic are requested to submit their
abstracts online to embedded@fosdem.org before 04/01/2009. Notification
of receipt will be sent within 48 hours. Authors wishing to submit a
full paper (between 6 and 12 A4 pages), can do so in PS or PDF format.

The Program Committee will evaluate the abstracts and consists of:

* Philippe De Swert, Nokia (Maemo), Finland
* Geert Uytterhoeven, Sony Techsoft Centre Europe, Belgium
* Peter De Schrijver (p2), Nokia (Maemo), Finland
* Klaas van Gend, MontaVista Software, The Netherlands
* Michael Opdenacker, Free Electrons, France

Thanks,

Philippe
