2nd EMBEDDED SYSTEMS and OPERATING SYSTEMS track at FOSDEM 2004
21 - 22 February 2004, Brussels
Call for papers
The 2004 edition of FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Developers' European
Meeting; http://www.fosdem.org) will take place in Brussels, Belgium
on 21 and 22 February 2004. For the second time, a track on Embedded
and Operating Systems will be organized. The first edition was quite
succesful and attracted up to 100 attendants for certain topics.
The program and papers of last year are available at
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. 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.
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
(e.g. Linux, BSD, the Hurd, ...)
* Embedded Development : tool chains and project cases
(e.g. tool chain projects, packaging for cross
compilation, portability, ...)
* Real-time extensions, nanokernels and hardware virtualization software
(e.g. RTAI, Adeos, KURT, L4, ...)
* Hard real-time OS's
(eCos, RTEMS, ...)
* Embedded Java: open source implementations and the compatibility question
(Classpath, Kaffe, Wonka, ..., Mauve, JCK, JCP, ...)
* Open hardware and softcores
(e.g opencores.org, OpenRISC, leonSparc, FPGA's, ...)
* GUI's for embedded systems
(Gtk, Qt, MicroWindows, ...)
Authors are requested to submit their abstracts online to
email@example.com before 18/12/2004. 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:
* Herman Bruyninckx, Professor at K.U.Leuven, Belgium
* Geert Uytterhoeven, Sony NSCE, Belgium
* Karim Yaghmour, Opersys, Canada
* Marcus Brinkman, University Bochum, Germany
* Peter 'p2' De Schrijver, Mind, Belgium
Peter Vandenabeele, acts as practical organiser for this track.
All communication should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
