Just my 2.0e-2...

I have direct experience with FOSDEM (https://fosdem.org/2017/) that is
held every year end of January/beginning of February in Bruxelles.
Personally, I like it, I find it very active (~5000 participants/year) and
refreshing (after a year buzz-wording).  Joking I say that it looks almost
like IETF's incubator... :-) (the density of geeks per square meter is
similar :-)

The call for contribution has been opened just one week ago.
