DebConf7 Registration --------------------- Registration is now open for DebConf7, which will take place in Edinburgh from Sunday 17 to Saturday 23 June 2007. To register, go to https://penta.debconf.org/user and create an account on the conference management system. After visiting the activation URL sent to you by email, go to https://penta.debconf.org/submission/dc7/person and log in, then fill in at least the 'General', 'Contact' and 'Travel, accommodation and costs' tabs reachable through the 'Registration details' button on the bar on the left of the page. We suggest that attendees begin making travel arrangements as soon as possible. Some travel information has already been collected at https://debconf7.debconf.org/wiki/Travel We hope to obtain enough sponsorship to help some people attend who would not be able to pay for their own accommodation/food/travel. We intend to allocate travel sponsorship money in March. If you would like to apply for sponsored accommodation, food, or travel, please fill in as much information as you can on the registration pages. Even if you have not arranged your travel when you apply for sponsorship, we need to know which days you intend to spend at the conference. DebConf7 Call for Papers ------------------------ We invite submissions of proposals for papers, presentations, discussion sessions and tutorials. Submissions will be accepted until 31 January. This year submission of a formal written paper for the conference proceedings is optional, though encouraged. Providing a written paper in advance means that interested people can attend your session ready with ideas for discussion, and especially helps those who find it hard to follow rapid English speech. DebConf talks will be broadcast live on the internet where possible, and videos of the talks will be published on the web along with the presentation slides and papers. To submit papers, first register for DebConf as described above. Then use the 'New event/paper' button on https://penta.debconf.org/submission/dc7 and fill in information about your submission on the various tabs. You can use the same interface to submit papers for DebConf, DebCamp or DebianDay, by choosing the appropriate 'track'. Looking forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh in June, the DebConf team About DebConf ------------- DebConf is the Debian Project's developer conference. In addition to a full schedule of technical, social and policy talks, DebConf provides an opportunity for developers, contributors and other interested people to meet in person and work together more closely. It has taken place annually since 2000 in locations as varied as Canada, Finland and Mexico. DebConf will be preceded by DebCamp, from Sunday 10 to Friday 15 June. DebCamp is a smaller, less formal event giving an opportunity for group work on Debian projects. On Saturday 16 June DebianDay will take place. DebianDay is a short conference aimed at Debian users, and others interested in learning more about free software.
