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.
The format will be as follows:
1st day: Morning will start with short position statements with each
group identifying their work and current challenges they're facing.
Afternoon will be topic identification and breakout, or longer
in-depth presentations about the details of important bits of
2nd day: in-depth forward-looking workshops with some 40 minutes
"what could be" presentations, and fixit hacking sessions.
We encourage submissions related to open source multimedia projects
and open multimedia standards. Some suggested topic areas are:
* open media codecs (Ogg Vorbis, Theora, Dirac etc.)
* media frameworks (such as GStreamer, VLC, ffmpeg)
* 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 submitted before the 31st October 2006 to be
