The X.Org Developers' Conference is already coming up next month and there's a lot of interesting topics to be discussed from DRM security to Mesa to reverse-engineering NVIDIA GPUs.

There's now an XDC2013 Wiki program page for the 2013 X.Org Developers' Conference that's taking place at the end of September in Portland, Oregon.

From the Wiki-based program, the submitted talks include:

- DRM security.
- Going over 20 years of the CONFIG_VT support within the Linux kernel.
- Thoughts and experiences with the Mesa OpenGL software rasterizing.
- Speeding up kernel bisecting.
- A status update on the Gallium3D OpenCL "Clover" support.
- An effects framework for OpenGL testing.
- The state of the Mesa graphics project.
- Glaze, as a new Intel project that provides a shinier way to wrap OpenGL.
- Reverse-engineering power management on NVIDIA graphics processors.
- Using process address space on the graphics processor.
- DRI3.
- Mesa Mega Drivers.

Interestingly, there's no talks about Wayland and also nothing from Canonical about Mir.

More details on the XDC2013 conference can be found via the X.Org Wiki. Unfortunately I will not be at the event this year (the XDC2013 conference dates talked about before had changed after I had already booked a non-refundable flight for my annual Oktoberfest pilgrimage on the precise dates of this Portland event). However, I will be monitoring the Wiki, IRC, and any video feeds to provide XDC coverage on Phoronix as usual.
