Just a quick update: we have received confirmation that our stand was accepted, but we don’t know the stand location yet, and the complete speaker’s list is not yet announced either, so we don’t know which FSFE-related talks will be at FOSDEM.

Also, Ulrike will not be available in Brussels this year. It is planned that I will be there already on Friday to receive the material delivery from the shipping company and to prepare the booth. If anybody else is already there on Friday, any help with that is appreciated.

I will send out a general call for helpers (for Saturday and Sunday) in a week or two.

Meanwhile, the location of our stand is announced. All stands have been completely regrouped by topic, and we are in an advocacy cluster in the upper floor of building K, so one level above where we’ve been in the past years.
