CfP: FOSDEM 2022 RetroComputing devroom (online)

Post by mmuman »

Here is the CfP for the Retro-computing devroom at FOSDEM.

Deadline is December 26th. The devroom will happen on February 5th during FOSDEM, online like last year.

We welcome submissions about open hardware for retro computers, old FLOSS software, or FLOSS software for old machines, including operating systems, be them original but maintained, or ported to their nemesis (like EmuTOS running on Amiga…)! Also of interest: drivers for using newer things on old machines (USB, Wifi…), SDKs… Showing your workflow for maintaining an old application with current compilers could be a nice topic too.

Extended deadline: December 29th.

Don't wait until you have a complete abstract, you can always polish it later, submit to pentabarf now!

We still need volunteers to host the talks at the retro devroom (to read questions to the speaker after the video playback, and moderate the Jitsi Meet channel which simulates the hallway discussion).

Ping me if interested :-)

The schedule is here: https://fosdem.org/2022/schedule/track/retrocomputing/
