Hi all,

Great news: FOMS is moving to Europe for the first time!

Paris, 3-4 Sept 2012

The Foundations of Open Media Software (and Standards) developer
conference will take place in Paris in 2012.
This is the first time in its history that FOMS will take place in
Europe after 2 years in New York and 4 years in Australia/New Zealand.

FOMS has been a part of the Open Video Conference OVC in the past two
years. OVC is next be planned for the summer of 2013.

Over the last year, huge progress has been made in open source media
software, codecs and open standards for media, in particular around
HTML5. FOMS provides a unique environment where Web developers,
browser vendors and open source media software developers meet and
discuss open media platforms.

This year, FOMS deliberately takes place just after the VideoLAN
Developer Days to open access to an even broader range of open source
media developers.
