Call for volunteers

FOSDEM 2011 is just around the corner, and you can help us make it a success again. If you've frequented FOSDEM during previous years, you can't have missed our little army of enthousiastic volunteers who helped us make FOSDEM a pleasant experience for all our visitors. If you want to be a part of this great team, here's your chance to sign up!

More specifically, we need help with the following tasks:

  • Setting up the venue
  • Manning the Infodesk
  • Handling the donations
  • Translating for our foreign guests
  • Manning the cloakroom
  • Handling taxis for speakers
  • Moderating the main tracks and the lightning talks
  • Cleaning up after the event
  • Making sure everyone has a good time
  • ...

If any or all of these sound like your cup of tea, you're more than welcome to lend a hand during the event. All you have to do is send us a mail at, and you're on your way to becoming a part of the team that makes FOSDEM what it is! All help is appreciated, even if it's just a couple of hours in between talks.

Helping hands are especially welcome on Friday from 9am onwards. If you're in the neighborhood, just come to the venue and look around for geeks in yellow shirts. I'm sure they can come up with dozens of things for you to do...
PS: Obviously we wouldn't want our volunteers on Friday to miss the beer event. So no worries there, we're going too!

See you at FOSDEM!
