X@FOSDEM 2015: Call For Presentations About Mir, Wayland, Etc

Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Events on 3 October 2014 at 01:26 AM EDT. 20 Comments
Luc Verhaegen has issued his annual call for speakers for those developers wishing to discuss their work on X.Org-related projects, including Wayland, Mir, Mesa, etc.

Luc continued to organize the "X.Org" development room each year at the Free Open-Source Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) that takes place around early February in Brussels, Belgium. Anything related to open-source graphics, input, or windowing systems is usually fair game.

After the annual X Developers' Conference (XDC), the FOSDEM event is usually the second or so best event for discussing Linux graphics -- plus there's many of other interesting tracks that take place each year too.

Luc's call for speakers can be found via his mailing list post. FOSDEM 2015 is happening 31 January to 1 February in Brussels. Those wishing to learn more about the FOSDEM open-source conference itself can visit FOSDEM.org. While FOSDEM is one of the events Phoronix usually covers annually in person and one of my favorite OSS/Linux events in the world, it's not yet been decided if that will still be the case in 2015 depending upon the advertising revenue the remainder of the year, etc.
