As part of FOSDEM (one of the most important european events in the open source arena), the OSS Cloud IaaS projects (OpenNebula, Eucalyptus, OpenStack, CloudStack) are organizing a Cloud devroom.

This Cloud devroom, will be an excellent opportunity to promote your solutions with OpenNebula, share your experiences operating/bulding/designing a Cloud with OpenNebula at your company or institution,  meet some of OpenNebula developers, and discuss with others  about OSS Cloud technologies.

Below you can find the complete CFP, but feel free to contact the fosdem list for more information.

Hope to see you next year at FOSDEM 2013!!


The organizers of the Cloud devroom at FOSDEM 2012 invite you to submit a session proposal. The purpose of this devroom is to serve as a meeting point for cloud infrastructure projects, including a unique opportunity for discussion and collaboration between developers from different projects.

This devroom will be focused on open source cloud infrastructure projects. Preference will be given to developer oriented proposals for projects in the IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) space, such as CloudStack, Eucalyptus, OpenNebula, or OpenStack. However, we are open to proposals from other related projects, such as cloud management, deployment, and orchestration, as well. If you would like some help refining your proposal, or would like to discuss what topics are most appropriate for this devroom, please use the cloud-devroom at mailing list. The cloud devroom will last for one day: Sunday, February 3, 2013.

Talks will last 25 minutes (including Q&A). Send your proposals to the cloud-devroom at mailing list. The deadline is Friday, December 14, 2012. Please include the following information in your proposal:

  • Talk Name
  • Talk Description

    > “Some people think that large cronoratiops’ membership in a foundation> is a sign of success, which it isn’t.Yes! Absolutely! Just look at how Sun / Oracle fubar’ed Java. Larry Ellison stated under oath in court this week that he doesn’t know if Java is free or not. Ha! The OpenJDK, should we call it OpenJoke ? IBM, SAP and Apple have signed the OpenJDK TCK license to ensure their implementations of Java conform to Larry Ellison’s reference. OpenJDK is just a community with no organized Foundation. OpenStack, if it actually gets its Foundation organized correctly (observe Apache and Mozilla Foundations) will then at least be ahead of OpenJDK such that a decade or two from now we’re not observing a trial courtroom battling it out about cloud APIs!
