The official part of DebConf5 will take place from the 9/10th to the 16/17th of July in Helsinki, Finland. (It is preceded by an inofficial hack camp.) To be able to plan and budget for this better than in previous years we ask for people who need travel support a bit earlier, like 9 month in advance. This is done so that we might take advance of better flight prices and special offers you can find. Are you interested to attend DebConf5, but can't afford the entire trip and/or the stay? Are you working on any aspect of Debian? Then please contact me in private mail and list - the area you work on within Debian - the approximate travel costs, if booked well in advance (accomodation and food is taken care of) - how much of that costs are you able to pay yourself - your name and contact info We, the DebConf5 organizers together with the DPL, will apply some common sense and fuzzy-logic filters and match the incoming requests against our vague idea of how the budget will look like and come back to you for further planning and information. We will try to handle this process in a semi-open way, since many are not compfortable about sharing travel dates and intentions publicly and might feel that their financial make up is a private issue. the "open" part about this will be that the decisions about sponsorship won't be drawn by lot or decided on arbitrarily but according to our general consensus. General registration is not open until after Christmas.
