Registration Instructions

After logging in, please fill in at least the 'General', 'Contact' and 'Travel' tabs reachable through the 'Registration details' button on the bar on the left of the page. Please pay special attention to the 'DebConf' and 'DebCamp' boxes on the 'General' tab. You need to select at least the 'I want to attend this conference' checkbox or your registration won't be valid.

There are four categories for registration for DebConf11:

  • Sponsored registration is the category which includes sponsored food and accommodation. You must register for this category by 19h May, 2011. In this category, you may still help cover the cost of your attendance by making a donation towards the cost of accommodation or pay for your own food tickets on-site. We will attempt to offer sponsored registration to all interested individuals who request it.
  • Basic registration includes attendance at the conference. However, you must arrange for accommodations yourself, and pay for your own food on-site.
  • Professional registration includes DebConf attendance for the entire week, and one week's worth of food and accommodation in our hotels included. The cost of this registration is 450 €. This category will close once we run out of rooms to assign.
  • Corporate registration is like "Professional registration only" for those who would like to support DebConf even more, perhaps by a company or university sponsoring the registration fee. The cost of this registration is 1000 €. This category will close once we run out of rooms to assign.

There is no automatic email confirmation, but you will receive an email confirmation before DebConf. If you close the registration page, and reopen it, you can verify your registration. Please do this and verify your data as our conference management system has been known to improperly save sometimes.

If you would like to make an additional donation to DebConf, follow the instructions at the the payments page. You may request an invoice for this, and the invoice can be written for either a donation, or a professional registration fee.

If you would like an invoice for any part of a fee or donation made, please mail with:

  • Names of attendee(s) and registration categories
  • Organisation and address to be invoiced
  • Whether you need a FFIS (Euro) or SPI (USD) invoice
  • List of payments/donations made and how you would like them recorded.


DebCamp is a smaller, less formal event than the main conference, giving an opportunity for group work on Debian projects. It will again be held in the week before DebConf, from Sunday-Saturday, 17th to 23rd July, 2011. In an effort to make DebCamp a little more organized we ask everyone who wants to attend DebCamp to fill in an additional text field describing their work plans for the Camp.

If you would like sponsorship for DebCamp, you must fill out a Debian-related workplan and the appropriate field.

Professional and Corporate attendees are charged their registration fee again for DebCamp (450€ / 1000€). For example, a professional attendee attending both DebCamp and DebConf would be charged 900 € total for the two weeks. If you would like to be sponsored for DebCamp instead, please mail us.

Travel sponsorship

We hope to obtain enough sponsorship to help some people attend who would not be able to pay for their own travel. We hope to allocate travel sponsorship money between April and June. We will make travel sponsorship reimbursements as soon as possible, but unfortunately, in the past this reimbursement has sometimes only been possible quite long after DebConf.

If you would like to apply for travel sponsorship, please fill in as much information as you can on the all 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. You apply for travel sponsorship on the "Travel" tab.

The deadline for sponsorship applications is 8th May, 2011.
