FOSDEM is the biggest free and non-commercial event organized by and for the community. Its goal is to provide Free and Open Source developers a place to meet. No registration necessary.


First round of calls for participation

FOSDEM is probably the largest free and non-commercial open source event, taking place in Brussels, Belgium on 4 and 5 February 2012. Being a developer-oriented conference, it is the open source communities and developers that make it what it is.

With our first round of calls for participation, we invite experienced speakers and linux distributions to apply.

In a second round, we will send out a call for stands, lightning talks (short talks) and you will be able to submit talks to the individual devrooms.

The following calls are open in this round:

  • Experienced speakers can apply for a main track talk, our high-quality talks for a broad and technical audience in our two biggest auditoria.
  • Linux distribution developers can sign up to participate in the distro miniconf. A two day dual-room miniconference on all things distributions.
  • Developer rooms are a place in which people and projects come together to discuss a common topic. (The call for devrooms has ended.)

Looking forward to a great event,
The FOSDEM Staff
