Luc Verhaegen has announced today that the X.Org Foundation will once again have a development room at next year's FOSDEM. The Free Open-Source Developers' European Meeting is taking place on the 7th and 8th of February in Brussels, Belgium.

There is room for 13 X.Org talks, and hopefully they will all be filled. Sadly though, they will not be having any X.Org event prior to the FOSDEM event like what was originally anticipated. With there no longer being an XDC (X Developers' Conference) and XDS (X Developers' Summit) each year like in the past, there will just be this two-day FOSDEM affair plus a planned X.Org summit next September in Portland, Oregon.

Information on the X.Org room at FOSDEM 2009 can be read about on the mailing list. Additional information can be found on the X.Org Wiki.

Like last year, Phoronix Media will be providing recordings of all X.Org talks during FOSDEM. If you want to watch the videos from last year, they can be found on our RadeonHD.org site. For FOSDEM 2009, we may provide HD recordings along with better audio channels. We'll also be publishing articles and live news items from the event.

If you're attending FOSDEM 2009, be sure to stop by the X.Org room if you want to hear more about kernel mode-setting, Gallium3D, the Graphics Execution Manager, Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2, and other great topics.
