Just to let you know, we're having a repeat of this year's very 
successful media developer summit in January. Please distribute widely.

Call for Participation

Foundations of Open Media Software (FOMS)
Developer Workshop
Thursday 24 - Friday 25 January 2008
Melbourne, Australia

Important Dates:

Submissions open: 10th June 2007
Submissions close: 15th August 2007
Notification: 30th September  2007

What is FOMS:

Foundations of Open Media Software (FOMS) is a developer workshop to
widen cooperation and interoperability among open source media
projects. Meet and discuss your plans for the next 12 months and forge
relationships with other developers to unwind the kinks, making open
media kick ever more ass.

This is a call for participation in the second FOMS meeting, which
will be held in Melbourne, Australia over two days in January leading
up to linux.conf.au 2008.

The FOMS meeting is organized by developers for developers.

The proximity to linux.conf.au allows us also to discuss audio- and
video-related issues with the developers of Open Source kernel,
networking and desktop systems.

How to attend:

FOMS attendees will be developers of open media software from the
community as well as professional delegates from companies with a
background and interest in this space. The attendance fee for
professional delegates is A$420.

If you would like to attend, please contact
foms-committee(at)lists.annodex.net and tell us why you should be
there, what you can contribute and what you hope to get out of it.

Coincident Conferences

Since FOMS2008 is happening the week before linux.conf.au, in the same 
city, you may want to consider submitting a proposal for that conference 
as well; especially if you need travel funding. The deadline for LCA 
2008 submissions is July 20. See http://linux.conf.au/presentations
for more information.

There is also a proposed LCA mini-conf on multimedia. This would be a 
good place to reach a broader audience or present more user-oriented 
work. Please visit http://annodex.org/events/lca2008_mmm/ for details.

It will be ten days of multimedia excellence!
