Subj: Italian Debian Community Conference 2010 - 17th-19th September, Perugia (PG - Italy)

The Debian Project, the team behind the free Debian operating system,
is pleased to announce that the 2010 Italian Debian/Ubuntu Community
Conference (DUCC-IT '10 for short)[1] will take place on the 17th, 18th
and 19th of September in Perugia. This year's conference will be
organized in collaboration with the local Italian Ubuntu team [2],
unifying the traditional Italian Ubuntu Meeting and Debian Community
Conference, in order to bring together both communities and improve
cross-distribution collaboration.
The event will be also an opportunity to enjoy the annual Software
Freedom Day[3], which will be celebrated in Perugia at the same

The conference will see the prominent participation of the current
Debian Project Leader, Stefano Zacchiroli, and some members of both
Debian-women[5] and Ubuntu-women[6] teams, explaining
the benefits of a wider collaboration scheme, and how we
encourage a more heterogeneous and balanced environment.

Scheduled events currently include some major technical tracks, aimed
toward new contributors, and practical sessions on Saturday, as well as
social launches, a key-signing party[7] and a round table discussion
about female participation in the Italian free software world[8] on
the other days. More information and logistical details are available
on the Debian wiki[9], or directly on the conference website[10].
