Dear all,

Fosdem is probably one of the largest free software developpers
conference. It will take place in 2013 on 2 and 3 February in
Brussels, Belgium, as it has for the last 10 years.

Another call for proposal had just been sent. There will be a python
devroom this year.  I think that the main track could also be really
adequate for talks about main python projects like ipython, sympy,
skimage and sklearn, numpy and scipy that have, as far as I have
noted, not been presented here at Fosdem yet (please correct me if I
am wrong)

I think that the leaders of these projects could find interesting to
come one more time (before EuroScipy 2013 at the end of August 2013
and possibly the World libre software meeting from 6 till 11 July
2013) to Brussels to speak before a very large and very diverse
audience (not limited to python enthusiasts)

For the main track, the selected speakers (talks are 50 min, rather
technical) have their travel costs covered.

The candidates have to register on the Fosdem website.

Hope to see you in Brussels (my city) one more time,
