The Travel Assistance Committee is taking in applications for those wanting
to attend ApacheCon US 2009 (Oakland) which takes place between the 2nd and
6th November 2009.
The Travel Assistance Committee is looking for people who would like to be
able to attend ApacheCon US 2009 who may need some financial support in
order to get there. There are limited places available, and all applications
will be scored on their individual merit. Applications are open to all open
source developers who feel that their attendance would benefit themselves,
their project(s), the ASF and open source in general.
Financial assistance is available for flights, accommodation, subsistence
and Conference fees either in full or in part, depending on circumstances.
It is intended that all our ApacheCon events are covered, so it may be
prudent for those in Europe and/or Asia to wait until an event closer to
them comes up - you are all welcome to apply for ApacheCon US of course, but
there should be compelling reasons for you to attend an event further away
that your home location for your application to be considered above those
closer to the event location.
