Having just finished a successful XDC in Germany, the X.Org Foundation
Board would like to request proposals to organize next year's XDC.  If
you are interested, please email the board (board at
with your proposal.  Some things to keep in mind:

- We generally switch between the Eastern and Western Hemispheres.
Since the 2012 XDC was in Europe, the 2013 XDC would ideally be in the
- Target ~50-60 attendees
- Location should be near hotels/dorms/etc. and public transportation
if possible
- Availability of catering and restaurants for snacks and dinners
- Rough cost estimates
- Suggested dates (conference is usually 3 days)
- Possible cultural events nearby

Please send your initial proposals to the Board by the end of November 2012.
