Visiting and videos

Q: In what timezone are you?

The conference is in Brussels time, which is CET (UTC + 1).

Q: I need a formal invitation for a VISA request

For legal reasons, the FOSDEM organization can only issue such letters of invitation to “main track” speakers for whom we also make travel and hotel arrangements.

If you are attending FOSDEM as part of your involvement with a project represented at our conference, we recommend you get in touch with someone you know locally who is involved in the project and ask them to invite you.

For information regarding Belgian visa requirements, we refer you to the website of the Belgian ministry of foreign affairs.

All talks can be watched from our website. Go to schedule, find the topic you are interested in, click on the Watch the live stream-link and enjoy the presentation.

All talk recordings will be made available on as soon as the presenter reviewed the contents to make sure the recording is correct.

This will usually take a few days to a few weeks, check for updates!
