There's just under three months left until FOSDEM 2008, the Free and Open-Source Developers' European Meeting, that takes place annually in Brussels, Belgium. Today new details have been announced when it comes to the main track speakers and developer rooms for FOSDEM 2008. Those keynoting at FOSDEM 2008 are Robert Watson, Gabrielle Pantera with Robin Rowe, and Pieter Hintjens. In addition, there will be technical talks focusing on Perl 6, PHP 6, the cmake build system, PackageKit, Klik, and Xen (among others). The 2008 speakers for FOSDEM can be found here.

Among the development rooms hosted at the next FOSDEM are for KDE, GNOME, OpenSuSE, Mozilla, OpenJDK, CentOS + Fedora, Debian, OpenOffice.org, and X.Org. The complete list of development rooms is available here. In addition to the "devroom", the X.Org folks are also planning an X.Org hot-house on the one or two days before FOSDEM in Brussels.

At Phoronix we'll be covering FOSDEM 2008 so stay tuned for our coverage towards the end of February.
