FOSDEM 2009 will take place February 7-8 2009 in Brussels, Belgium. Like last year we expect to have a booth and a devroom, the latter one together with the BSD groups.

More infos along with the schedule can be found at:


Also like last year we will have a series of talks and we are now accepting submissions. If you are a developer, DBA, a vendor or just a user who knows about a cool topic now it is your time to share with the community. If you are unsure if your topic fills an entire talk we also offer lightning talks.

Please submit your talk(s) to, include the topic and the length of the talk. You may choose between:

  • 60 minutes talk (~45 minutes talk + 15 minutes discussion)
  • 30 minutes talk (~20 minutes talk + 10 minutes discussion)
  • lightning talk (5 minutes, cut short)


We also need people for booth duty! Many visitors stop by our booth and ask interesting questions. We also sell cool merchandising stuff. If you want to help please let us know:


Just like 2008 we will try to book rooms for everyone in one hotel. If you need a place to sleep please drop us a mail timely at and include the number of individuals, the room type (single, double) and the date of arrival and leave.
