We have known for a while now that XDC2014 will happen in Bordeaux, France. Today the official call for presentations/papers has finally been issued along with other details on this upcoming Linux graphics conference.

The 2014 X.Org Developer's Conference will happen from 8 to 10 October in Bordeaux, France, The XDC2014 event is taking place at the University of Bordeaux and is being organixed by Martin Peres, X.Org Foundation board member and Nouveau driver contributor.

The official announcement for XDC2014 has now been issued. Additionally, he's issued a call for presentations that will expire at the beginning of October -- in general, all those that submit to present at XDC are accepted, assuming they apply in time. Talks range from the X.Org Server to Mesa to Wayland to other open-source Linux graphics and input software components.

More details on the X.Org Developers' Conference 2014 can be found out via the X.Org Wiki.

Sadly, this year there will likely not be any live coverage of XDC2014 on Phoronix, unless there's a decrease in the number of Phoronix readers using AdBlock. I'm not even going to be at Oktoberfest this year for the annual Phoronix trip as a result. If you wish for live Phoronix coverage of XDC2014, please disable AdBlock when viewing Phoronix.com or become a Phoronix Premium subscriber for our usually great, live coverage of the XDC events. Otherwise all the coverage will come once the IRC, Wiki logs, and videos are made available.
