Entrance to the Fosdem conference and devrooms is entirely free. Sorry,
we cannot give any travel grants to foreign visitors (local hospitality
with one of the organizers is possible to save hotel costs). In past
years, approx. 2,000 people visited the Fosdem conference. More
information on Fosdem can be found at http://www.fosdem.org/ .
