[edit] Timing

  • When (and why) would be the best time to host DebConf at your location?

We prefer organizing Debconf11 at the end of August or the beginning of September. Most of July and August are peak season for tourism and negotiating accomodation will be more difficult. Later in September, the Oktoberfest season starts which makes it equally difficult to find accomodation. Finally, it has to be made sure that no major trade fair will happen on the desired date.

  • What is your backup plan if your preferred venue isn't available at that time?

Our second choice is the Kolpinghaus. If this will be not available, there are other possible backup venues like rooms of the TUM (Technical Unviversity Munich) or other parts of the LMU.
