The FOSDEM is a major European event focusing on Free and Open Source Software Development. It is organised by people from the Free and Open Source Software community. It is looking to keep its independance from commercial interest, and hopes to get support in this goal from the community.

All information is available on the FOSDEM website (www.fosdem.org) and more specifically at http://www.fosdem.org/support

FOSDEM 's goal is to provide Free and Open Source developers and communities a place to go over the lastest developments in the Free and Open Source arena and to promote the development and the benefits of Free and Open Source solutions.
