> About FOSDEM
> FOSDEM is a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the 
> widespread use of free and open source software. Taking place in the 
> beautiful city of Brussels (Belgium), FOSDEM is widely recognised as the 
> best such conference in Europe. FOSDEM covers a wide spectrum of free
> and open source software projects, and offers a platform for people to
> collaborate. To this end, FOSDEM has set up developer rooms (devrooms)
> with network/internet connectivity and projectors where teams can meet
> and showcase their projects. Devrooms are a place for teams to discuss,
> hack and publicly present latest directions, lightning talks, news and 
> discussions. Besides developer rooms, FOSDEM also offers main tracks,
> lightning talks, certification exams and project stands. Every year,
> FOSDEM hosts more than 5000 developers at the ULB Solbosch campus.
> Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organisers
> gratefully accept donations and sponsorship. No registration necessary.
> About the devroom
> Since the first Microkernel devroom in 2012 this devroom has been part of
> each following FOSDEM. By now it has become a somewhat institutionalized
> tradition for the micro kernel community to meet there; to this date over
> a dozen projects have participated in one way or another. Each of the 
> projects face similar challenges but come up with partially differend
> solutions. Therefore, the goal of the Microkernel devroom is to bring the 
> various projects together, let them exchange ideas, cross-pollinate and 
> socialize.
> Social events
> It also has become a habit that the microkernel projects dine together
> somewhere in downtown Brussels after the devroom closes. The year 2017
> will not be any different, so there is going to be a microkernel family
> dinner on Saturday night. The exact location and time will be specified
> later. Consult the FOSDEM web and other projects for additional social
> events such as the famous FOSDEM-organized Friday Beer Event and the 
> FOSDEM-arranged free sightseeing tours for spouses.
> Important dates recap
> * 04.12.2016: Deadline for submissions
> * 11.12.2016: Schedule published and speakers notified of acceptance
> * 04.02.2017: The devroom takes places
