The initial list of talks for next month's FOSDEM 2014 X.Org/Graphics track has been published.

The Free Open-Source Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) is happening this year from the 1st to 2nd of February. Once again, it's taking place at the university in Brussels, Belgium. FOSDEM continues to be one of my favorite Linux / open-source events of the world, and it's no cost to attend.

The talks at FOSDEM 2014 that concern the X.Org/Graphics development room include the state of the X.Org Foundation, open-source Miracast, making the X.Org Server run without root rights, DRI3 and Compositing, Movit for high-speed high-quality GPU video filters, Intel Bay Trail graphics overview, Grate (the Tegra open-source driver), Lima (the open-source ARM Mali driver), an introduction to Video 4 Linux, and the state of Nouveau.

Overall, it should be a fairly interesting weekend event. The full listing of the graphics talks, the speakers, and other details can be found from the FOSDEM schedule. Originally I was also to be giving a talk on graphics testing, but unfortunately my travel schedule and expenses while being busy working on Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 do not unfortunately align this year.

There will still be remote coverage, however, of these talks on Phoronix from the presentation slides and/or video recordings if those happen this year. It's with much dismay that I will not be there this year providing real-time coverage of the interesting talks as I have done in many past years on Phoronix.
