Yes! We have official confirmation that we have a DevRoom at the 
upcoming (and i'm specifically _not_ saying "this years") FOSDEM event.

The wiki page with current information is at 

As you can see, the speaker schedule is still completely empty, and we 
need to fill it before January 31st. I'm going to poke a few chinese 
volunteers directly, but if anyone here is interested in giving a talk 
out of their own free will, then please give me a holler ASAP.

We will not have the same room we had in the past two editions, instead
we will get one with 100 seats, so we will have to deliver a larger
crowd ;)

Also, there are early plans to organise a HotHouse before the DevRoom, 
so that people can get more out of their travelling to Brussels than 
"just a few talks". This is very preliminary, as we first need to know 
whether this will draw a sufficiently large crowd and whether we will be 
able to get funding for a small conference room with the necessary 
creature comforts.

So if you are from anywhere in europe, or if you have a travelbudget 
that reaches this far: mark saturday the 23rd and sunday the 24th in 
your calendars, and keep friday and thursday as optional :)

>From the organisational side, i would like to hear some feedback ASAP:

* For interested speakers: please get in touch asap.

* For the hothouse: please state whether you would like to be present at 
a hothouse on friday (or that you're not interested), and whether you 
would also like to be present on thursday.
