To request bursaries (sponsorship) for food, accommodation, or travel, you must
be registered by Sunday, 10 April 2015.

After this date, registrations will still be accepted in any of the basic,
professional, and corporate categories. However, accommodation on the campus
will no longer be guaranteed, and requests for sponsorship will no longer be

Even if you are not certain you will be able to attend, we recommend
registering now.  You can always cancel your registration, before the deadline.
We do suggest that attendees begin making travel arrangements as soon as
possible, of course.

We have a registration FAQ [1], which will slowly be expanded, as people ask
difficult questions during registration.

As in recent years, the conference registration is integrated with the Debian
single sign-on system (SSO).  The SSO system is now based on client
certificates. If you haven't used them, yet, you'll want to brush up on the
documentation. [3]

If you are a Debian member, or have an account on Alioth, you can use Debian
SSO.  If not, this year, you are able to signup with a username and password.
You won't have to create Alioth accounts for your children, any more :)

There are instructions [4] for registration on the website, if you need more
details.  And, as always, we have a DebConf Code of Conduct [5] and a Debian
Code of Conduct that apply to our participation at DebConf.
