|| ||DebConf11 in your city! |

Every year, the location for DebConf, the annual international Debian
conference, is selected via a competitive bid process. Although we haven't got
to DebConf9 yet, organising a conference isn't quick, so it's already time to
start thinking about a location for DebConf11.
We encourage everyone to think about whether their city would make a good
DebConf location, and, if it would, to start working on a proposal. (You don't
have to be heavily involved in Debian before making a bid.) There will be a
chance to present your proposed location at DebConf9 in Spain in July, but
don't worry if you can't be there -- proposals will be accepted until the end
of the year, and a final decision will be made early in 2010.
Interested? For more information see http://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf11
Join us on #debconf-team on irc.debian.org to let us know what you're working
on. We'll be glad to answer any questions you have about organising DebConf or
about the process for choosing the location.
Thanks, and see you at DebConf9 in Cáceres!
