I think the organizers are trying to reach a deal with an university.

The best is to subscribe to this list. Also you can hang out on irc #lgm.

As a Belgian I can confirm that Jan Claes puts a lot of effort in the
local free software community and organizing. So I can highly
recommend him. Maybe Jan, you could try to get more volunteers of
Ubuntu-be involved? In that case the best is to contact Femke of
Constant vzw, which is coordinating the Brussels LGM. Jan, if you like
typography, you won't be dissappointed. There is plenty of typography
related talks on LGM.

Most (if not all) developers bring their laptop. Although the idea was
to maybe get also public outside the developer community invited. It
could be useful for that, provided that they run the free graphics
software of course ;-) But again better coordinate with Femke. As you
live in Belgium, maybe you can try join an OSP activity to get in
contact with Femke and the other organizers:

Thanks for stepping forward!
