This page is an effort to document experience of organizing minidebconfs/debutsavs to help new people interested to organize such events.

  1. Find a host institute and fix dates for the event
  2. Decide the name and content
    • If there is an active Free Software community in the host institute you may want to give them a chance to present their work, you can call it debutsav
    • If the majority of talks are debian focused, call it minidebconf
  3. Complete website and registration forms
  4. Get permission for foreign guests from Ministry of External Affairs if planning for foreign participants.
  5. Design T Shirts, Stickers etc
  6. Look for sponsors
  7. Print goodies
  8. Plan for accommodation, most colleges would be able to offer guest rooms or hostels
