### What is FOSDEM?

**FOSDEM is a free event for software developers to meet, share ideas
and collaborate.**

Every year, thousands of developers of free and open source software
from all over the world gather at the event in Brussels.

FOSDEM 2024 will take place on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 February 2024.
It will be an in-person event at the **ULB Solbosch Campus, Brussels,
Belgium, Europe.**
If you aren't there, you can watch the live streams from the main
tracks and developer rooms.

### Important stuff:

- FOSDEM is free to attend. There is no registration.
- [FOSDEM website](
- [FOSDEM code of conduct](
- [FOSDEM Schedule](

### Desirable topics:

In this devroom, we're interested in any projects that directly reads
files and analyses or manipulates them directly. Some projects and tools
that fit the devroom are:

- Ghidra
- Valgrind
- Dyninst
- GNU poke
- Binutils
- SystemTap
- Elfutils
- Libabigail
- Radare2

And any other debugging or binary analysis tool or framework
projects that might be of interest to Free Software enthusiasts.

### Topic overlap

There are over 50 developer rooms this year, and multiple main tracks,
so there may be overlap with some other events.
If the topic would fit more than one devroom, you are free to choose
which to
submit to, but we encourage you to consider the focus of the talk, and
see which
devroom is best matched.
