The organisers of FOSDEM, Europe's biggest open source and free software oriented conference, have announced the dates for the next instalment of the event. FOSDEM 2014 will take place over the weekend of 1 and 2 February 2014 at the Université Libre in Brussels. The organisers say that attendees "may also safely assume that there will be a beer event on Friday 31 January."

FOSDEM is a yearly conference that, since its inception in 2001, has garnered a reputation as one of the most popular community-run open source events in Europe; attendance at the conference is free. In the last few years, the conference has been estimated to have more than 5000 attendees each year.

Video recordings from the main stages of this year's conference are available in WebM format from the conference's web site. This includes talks about the Udev fork EudevDirect download, systemd usage in DebianDirect download and the consequences of UEFI Secure BootDirect download.
