Debian at IEEE OSSCOM 2015 in Jordan?

Hi all,

The IEEE sent the attached mail to the press team. They are organising
OSSCOM (International Conference on Open Source Software Computing) in
September 2015 in the city of Amman, Jordan. The conference has links to
higher education institutions[2] so I've CCed debian-edu folks. Their
Systems Software track specifically mentions Debian so I hope the DPL or
another travel-willing Debian speaker[3] (BCCed) would be willing to
represent Debian at the conference. This is a great opportunity to
connect Debian to countries in the middle-east so I hope someone is
willing to attend. If anyone is interested, please take a look at the
call for papers (attached or [4]).
