DebConf13 to take place in Switzerland
The organisers of the event, also known as DebConf13, decided to selected Vaumarcus over the Latvian capital Riga following a discussion in an online virtual meeting. While Riga was considered to be more affordable than Vaumarcus, which had a higher preliminary budget of €175,000, they opted for the Swiss city as it offered "a stronger, maturer, more experienced local team".
This year's upcoming DebConf12 event will take place from 8 to 14 July 2012 in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua in Central America. As with other DebConf conferences, it will include various coding parties, discussions and workshops, as well as a smaller less formal event called Debian Camp (DebCamp) prior to the main event.
Further details about the conference will be added to the DebConf13 wiki page when available.
