We are pleased to announce the CfP for the Open Source Computer Aided
Modeling and Design devroom at FOSDEM 2022, on Saturday, 5 February 2022.
FOSDEM Code of Conduct: https://fosdem.org/2022/practical/conduct/
We hope you'll join us for a full day of talks, demos and interesting
discussions on designing, modeling and testing physical objects using
tools. This year's event will be fully virtual (:sad trombone:)
and will feature
multiple channels for talks, Q&A as well as
hallway discussions (:happy dance:).
We welcome any talk proposals about the creation of physical objects.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Open Hardware projects
- Circuit Design
* Printed circuit board design tools
* Circuit simulation
- 3d modeling and analysis
* Solid modeling tools
* Meshing, modeling and transforming physical representations
* Finite element analysis
- 3d printing
* 3d slicing tools
* Motor control
- Machine design and integration
* ECAD/MCAD integration
* Thermal analysis
* Wire modeling
- Physical Model Data storage
* Data representation and optimization
* Version control in hardware data storage
* Collaborative and team-based hardware design techniques
Slots will be allocated for short (20 minutes), long (40 minutes)
talks and in-depth (60 minutes). This includes question time, for which
you should budget at least 20% of your time.
Speakers need to specify their preferred format. Both include time for
questions and answers.
Depending on the number of submissions, submitters may be asked to
utilize an alternate time format.
## The submission process
Please submit your proposals athttps://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM22
If you already have a Pentabarf account (for example as a result of
having submitted a proposal in the past), make sure you use it to log in
and submit your proposal. Do not create a new account if you already
Please include the following information with your submission:
- Preferred Session length
- Speaker bio
- Link to any hardware / code /slides for the talk
When you submit your proposal (creating an "Event" in Pentabarf), make
sure you choose the "Open Source Computer Aided Modeling and Design" in
the track drop-down menu. Otherwise your proposal may go unnoticed.
Fill in at least a title and abstract for the proposed talk and a
suggested duration. Keep in mind that much of the value in these
meetings comes from the discussions, so please allot at least 20%
of the talk time for questions and answers.
## Important dates
- Call for papers available: 29 November 2021
- Call for participation closes: 28 December 2021
- Devroom schedule available: 1 January 2022
- Talk recording uploads due: 20 January 2022
- Devroom day: Saturday 5 February 2022 (09:00 to 17:00)
this year's conference will be fully virtual, all talks must be
pre-recorded. These will be verified for sound and video quality prior
to the conference.
accepted talk will have a dedicated chaperone to help you through the
process of recording, encoding and uploading your talk.
The recordings will be published under the same licence as all FOSDEM
