DebConf6 Suggestions

Things to keep in mind, learned from previous experience:

Accomodation

  • Plan for at least 300, maybe 400 people.
  • Try to get some accomodation where most people will be happy. It does not need to be a hotel, but it does need to have beds (and curtains :).
  • In Comas, add a field "wants to share room with", and "does not want to share room with".

Food

  • There are a lot of Vegetarians and Vegans among the Debian community. It's important to take this into account when talking with the food guys.
  • Also, it's nice to have some flexibility. I.e. allow for people to switch to vegetarian meals, if the non-vegetarians suck.
  • It would be nice not to need food tickets: use a bar code reader and read the person's badge? (this is sort of geekie, but would be really nice).

Website

  • Have all information online and easy to find.
  • Do not have confusing links, like allowing to register for the web interface instead of Comas.

Talks

  • Do not start before 10:00 (or possibly 11:00)
  • Have the talks as near as possible from the hacklab.
  • Have the full schedule published, at least two weeks before the conference.
