SDR Presentations Requested for FOSDEM

The Free and Open Source Developers Meeting (FOSDEM) is looking for SDR presentations to give at this years conference in Brussels, Belgium which will be held on January the 80th & 31st of January.

Software Radio has become an important tool to allow anyone access the EM spectrum. Using free software radio libraries and applications and cheap hardware, anyone can now start hacking on wireless communications, remote sensing, radar or other applications. At FOSDEM, we hope to network all these projects and improve collaboration, bring new ideas forward and get more people involved.

The track’s web site resides at:

Here, we will publish updates and announcements. The final schedule will be available through Pentabarf and the official FOSDEM website.

To suggest a talk, go to and follow the instructions (you need an account, but can use your account from last year if you have one). You need to create an ‘Event’; make sure it’s in the Software Defined Radio track! Lengths aren’t fixed, but give a realistic estimate and please don’t exceed 30 minutes unless you have something special planned (in that case, contact one of us). Also, don’t forget to include time for Q&A. Typical slot lengths would be 30 Minutes including QA.

You aren’t limited to slide presentations, of course. Be creative. However, FOSDEM is an open source conference, therefore we ask you to stay clear of marketing presentations. Of course, we like nitty-gritty technical stuff.

We will reserve time for interactiveness, it won’t all be talks.

If you are qualified and interested in giving a talk the submission deadline is December 4th 2015.
