Sorry for the heavy cross-posting - I was not sure how to get to all
developers in a better way.

Call for Participation:
Foundations of Open Media Software (FOMS)
Thursday 12 - Friday 13 January 2007
Sydney, Australia


Important Dates:

 Submissions open: 31st August 2006
 Submissions close: 31st October 2006
 Notification: 10th November 2006

Foundations of Open Media Software (FOMS) is a developers' meeting to
forge cooperation and interoperability among open source media
projects. The idea is to get key people together and thus further the
cause of open media software.

This is a call for participation in the first FOMS meeting, which will
be held in Sydney, Australia over two days leading up to linux.conf.au
2007, in January 2007.

Presentations, case studies, discussion & development fora will aim at
explaining, fixing, connecting, enhancing, and/or starting open media

Any topic in open media software is welcome. Some suggested topics may be:

  * open media codecs (Ogg Vorbis, Theora, Dirac etc.)
  * media frameworks (such as GStreamer, VLC)
  * video and audio infrastructure (V4L2, ALSA, JACK, PulseAudio etc.)
  * applications (streaming, VoIP, video editors, etc.)
  * open media on proprietary systems (MS Windows, Mac OS X, iPod)

For information about submitting your abstract or proposal, please see

Your proposal should be sent/entered before the 31st October 2006 to
be considered for discussion/presentation at the meeting.
Notifications will be provided by 10th November, to allow you to take
advantage of early-bird registration of LCA.

You are also encouraged to submit a paper to linux.conf.au at
