We have scheduled a three day X Developer's meeting from 
Wednesday, April 28, through Friday, April 30, 2004, at the
Cambridge Research Laboratory (CRL) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

This meeting is intended to cover a wide variety of topics
about X Window System technologies, and the as yet unmet needs of
the technologies that depend on the X Window System.  As a result, 
this meeting is intended for people working across the entire 
X Window System stack, including toolkits and window managers
and desktop infrastructure.  This meeting is not, however, 
intended to cover general X application development
topics or concepts.

There will be a number of people giving presentations.  These 
presentations will likely consume no more than half of the overall 
meeting time so the remaining time can be spent with informal 
discussions,  hacking, breakout sessions, etc.

If you wish to volunteer to give a presentation, please send e-mail
to xdevconf at freedesktop.org.  In addition, if you have specific topics
you'd like to see discussed in a presentation or during informal 
sessions, please send e-mail with your suggestions to that
address as well.

Current presentations for the X Developer's Meeting include:

  * Keith Packard and Jim Gettys: "The (Re)Architecture of the 
	X Window System"
  * Looking Glass - Sun Microsystems
  * Dave Reed & Dave Smith: "Croquet: Integrating X with 3D 
	Immersive Environments"

Due to space limitations, attendance will be limited to no more than
40 people.  If you would like to attend, please send mail to 
xdevconf at freedesktop.org.  Having the names of attendees in
advance eases building security, as we share the building with 
other companies.

An audio feed will be made available for those attending remotely
or unable to attend due to limitations on space. The meeting venue
provides networking support with 
high speed access outside the facility.

The hotels recommended near CRL are The Kendall Hotel, the Cambridge
Marriott, and the Residence Inn.  All three of these are a short
walk from CRL and easily accessible via public transportation from
the Kendall Square subway stop next to MIT.  We have not negotiated 
any special rates with these hotels, so you'll need to shop around 
for the best rates, as they vary. A longer list of hotels
is available at http://www.ai.mit.edu/visiting/hotels/hotels.shtml
