Registration is now open for DebConf14

Going to 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 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 the Debian wiki.


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 documented process.

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 here.

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.

We look forward to seeing you in Portland in August!

The DebConf team
