Sorry guys for spamming, I put the wrong mailing list. Now is updated.


Dear Lispers,

I'm pleased to announce, for the first time, Lisp Devroom @ FOSDEM,
the biggest FLOSS event in Europe, that will be held in Brussels on
January 31st to February 2nd, 2015.

This is a call to propose your talks for FOSDEM.

The topic of the devroom includes all Lisp-inspired dialects,
like Common Lisp, Scheme, Clojure, Emacs Lisp, newLISP, Racket,
GCC-Melt, LFE, Shen & more. Every talk is welcome: from real-world
examples, research projects, unusual ideas to small pet hacks.

FOSDEM is a hacker conference and we would be happy to see more
practical proposals, crazy ideas and open source projects
demonstrations than dry scientific papers (we will leave them for ILC
and ELS :-P).

Important dates

* Submission deadlines:     2014-12-14
* Acceptance notifications: 2014-12-28
* Lisp Devroom conference:  2015-01-31 (Saturday)

Submitting proposals

Please use https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM15 to submit your
proposals; you will have to create Pentabarf account unless you
