The Devuan Conference 2019 is a not-for-profit event, this means that
the conference fees will cover the bare cost of venue, catering,
logistics and documentation materials.

using the description '**Devuan Conference**' directly to:
Or via bank wire to the IBAN below :
Dyne.org foundation (non-profit)
Bank: ABN-AMRO - Amsterdam, The Netherlands
# Call for Sponsors
Space at the conference is limited and we are trying to balance the
amount of registration with the size of the venue and resources
available. Hence registrations at this time are called mainly for
**talks** and **sponsors**. In two weeks we will follow up with more
information and an early bird offer for tickets.
Please do consider sponsoring this event! We will work hard to give
you and all the conference attendees all the visibility deserved.
Send your sponsorship proposal to <conference@???> with the
word `sponsor` in the subject.
If we have enough sponsors to cover all costs we'll be able to grant

# Travel and accomodation
The costs for reaching and staying in Amsterdam are entirely on
participants, but we hope that by releasing early this call everyone
has enough time to conveniently book a place in this beautiful city
and perhaps allow a couple extra days to visit it and hang out.
# Live streaming and recording
The conference will be a great occasion to have in-depth interviews
with developers and adopters as well plenary sessions of Q&A with the
public, in the hope to exchange more information about the future of
Devuan. The event will be streamed live and recorded and all
recordings will be freely made available online.
Journalists interested to participate are welcome to contact us, we
will prepare a press folder and make sure they can reach anyone they
want to interview.
