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 2008.

The FOMS meeting is organized by developers for developers.

The proximity to 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) 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, 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 for more information.
