Registration open for DebConf14

The Debian Project is pleased to announce that registration is now open for
DebConf14, taking place in Portland, Oregon, USA from Saturday, August 23
to Sunday, August 31, 2014.

To request food, accommodation, or travel sponsorship, you must be
registered by Thursday, May 15, 2014.  After this date, registrations will
still be accepted in any of the basic, professional, and corporate
categories, but requests for sponsorship will no longer be accepted.

Note that, as for previous years, you will be asked to confirm your
registration later once sponsorship has been finalized.  If you are not
certain you will attend but are considering it, we encourage you to
register now.


If you want to attend DebConf14, please fill out the registration form

This year, conference registration is integrated with the new Debian SSO
system.  If you are a Debian developer and have not previously used the
Debian SSO system, you will need to configure an SSO password on
db.debian.org.  If you are not a Debian developer, you will have an
opportunity to create an alioth account as part of the registration process. 
For more information about Debian single sign-on, see


In past years, DebConf has been preceded by a separate DebCamp event,
for developers to gather before the conference and collaborate in person
on Debian.  This year the team is trying a different approach, with a
longer conference period allowing for blocks of talks to be mixed with
blocks of coding time throughout the week.  More information about the
schedule will be made available when the Call for Papers is posted in
the near future.

As mentioned in the last bits from the DPL mail
there is also an opportunity for Debian teams to organize sprints around
DebConf.  Teams who are interested should follow the process documented at

Thank you

The DebConf14 team would like to thank all of our sponsors who have made
this event possible - a full list of whom can be found at

We are still seeking sponsors to help us make DebConf14 a success.  If
you or your company would like to give back to Debian, please consider
becoming a sponsor: <http://debconf14.debconf.org/become-sponsor.xhtml>

We look forward to seeing you in Portland in August!

The DebConf team
