During this year's 8th annual Internation Linux Kongress, Held November 28th thru November 30th, at University of Twente, Enschede, Netherlands, a special Telephony BOF and presentation about GNU Bayonne and the GNU Telephony effort as a whole will be held. This BOF will be hosted by David Sugar, the maintainer of GNU Bayonne and a founder of Open Source Telecom, Inc. The BOF should also include those interested in Linux kernel drivers for telephony devices. We hope particularly to have people gather to talk about both LTAPI and and CAPI4Linux.

This is an open gathering for those attending Linux Kongress, and all those interested in free telephony software are welcome. While we will have some instructive information about GNU Bayonne specifically for those that are so interested, we also wish to engage the community in a direct discussion on the future of free telephony in general and to present information on current and future projects that are part of GNUCOMM, the GNU Telephony effort as a whole, as well as to cover those issues in telephony that are specific to the Linux kernel itself.

Linux Kongress is historically a gathering of developers involved in Linux Kernel issues. The Linux Kongress telephony BOF will be held on the second day of Linux Kongress, November 29th. Further information can be obtained by contacting the BOF host, David Sugar, by sending email to sugar@gnu.org. Further information about Linux Kongress may be found at www.linux-kongress.de
