I think FOSDEM is a special event in that it's a real free software event -
unlike LinuxThis or LinuxThat where there's some talk of free software and a
load of marketing talk.

There should be lots of people from FSFE there, and Brussels is pretty easy
to get to from a lot of parts of Europe, so if you're thinking of coming, I
recommend it.

Talks this year include our own Georg Greve, "Beyond GPLv3":

FFII's Pieter Hintjens on software patents:

Sun's Simon Phipps will talk about "Liberating Java"

And our Shane Coughlan will be giving a lightning talk on the FTF:

And there's a load of other sessions that could be good:

Wikipedia also has an article on FOSDEM, but there's not much there:
