Brussels / 31 January & 1 February 2015



FOSDEM welcomes all open source developers! While we don't own the university campus and have little control over its accessibility, we have tried to find ways for developers with physical limitations to make the most of the event.

Wheelchair users

All rooms except for AW1.121 and AW1.125 are accessible to wheelchair users. There are ramps and lifts. The accessible routes and the location of the lifts are not always obvious but FOSDEM staff and volunteers will be happy to show you around.

Developers with limited hearing or vision

We reserve a limited number of seats at the front of both main track rooms (Janson and K.1.105 (La Fontaine)) for developers with hearing or visual impairments. We cannot make advance reservations in every developer room, but accommodations can usually be made on the spot.

Accessibility contact

All staff and volunteers should be able to help you find accessible routes around the campus.

Mark van den Borre is particularly familiar with the campus. You can contact him directly during the event by email ( or phone (+32 486 961 726). You can also ask any volunteer or staff member to radio him.

We welcome any suggestions to further improve the accessibility of FOSDEM. Please contact Mark if you have any suggestions or concerns.
