EuroBSDcon is the European annual technical conference gathering users and developers working on and with 4.4BSD (Berkeley Software Distribution) based operating systems family and related projects.

EuroBSDcon gives the exceptional opportunity to learn about latest news from the BSD world, witness contemporary deployment case studies, and meet personally other users and companies using BSD oriented technologies. EuroBSDcon is also a boiler plate for ideas, discussions and information exchange, which often turn into programming projects.

The conference has always attracted active programmers, administrators and aspiring students, as well as IT companies at large, which found the conference a convenient and quality training option for its staff. We firmly believe that high profile education is vital to the future of technology, and hence greatly welcome students and young people to this regular meeting.

EuroBSDcon is run under the umbrella of the EuroBSDcon Foundation, a registered non-profit organization in The Netherlands.


2013 Organization Committee: André Oppermann (Chair), Noel Beck.

2013 Program Committee: Adrian Steinmann (Chair, NetBSD), Beat Gaetzi (FreeBSD), Peter N. M. Hansteen (OpenBSD), Claudio Jeker (OpenBSD), Jörg Sonnenberger (NetBSD), Ulrich Spörlein (FreeBSD), André Oppermann (OC delegate).
