openSUSE Conference 2011 seeking sponsors
The openSUSE project has announced that it is seeking sponsors for this year's openSUSE Conference. The third international conference will take place from 11 to 14 September 2011 in Nuremberg, Germany.
According to its organisers, last year's event had over 35 per cent more attendees than in 2009 and they expect it to grow even more in 2011. In total, the number of 2011 openSUSE Conference attendees is expected to exceed 500. Sponsorship will help to cover travel costs for speakers and some attendees, as well as the cost of the facilities.
The event is aimed at users, contributors and developers from both inside and outside of the openSUSE community. This year's conference motto is RWX3 – the UNIX acronym for "Read, Write, Execute" three times over, for the user, the community and the rest of the world.
