The CE Linux Forum is hosting the second Open Source DLNA Summit, in Ede Netherlands, November 8 2008.

This summit is co-located at the same venue as Embedded Linux Conference Europe.

(Note that registration in Embedded Linux Conference is not required for attending the DLNA Summit)


The primary purpose of this conference is to facilitate the meeting and sharing of information among several parties interested in open source implementations of the DLNA specifications. These includes open source developers, product developers who might use these implementations, representatives from the DLNA organization or from related companies (certification and testing labs), and from members of the CE Linux Forum who are interested in this work.

This page has information about the summit. It will be updated as more information becomes available.

The CE Linux Forum is interested in promoting and supporting work in this area, for eventual use in Linux-based CE products. It is hoped that by collaborating we can avoid duplication of effort, strengthen interoperability between implementations, and help accelerate the development of robust and feature-full solutions. During this summit we also want to gauge the interest level for holding such events in the future and discuss ideas for making them more productive.
