Payments and Donations for DebConf15

Registration choices

As always, basic registration for DebConf is free of charge for attendees.

If you are attending the conference in a professional capacity, or as a representative of your company, we ask that you consider registering in one of our paid categories, to help cover the costs of the conference. Prices for the paid registration packages can be found here.

These registration fees do not include food or accommodation, which will be payable on site.


Any donation you can make will be gratefully received and will be used to support this year's DebConf in Heidelberg. Should the conference run a surplus, then remaining funds will be used exclusively towards future Debian events.

Depending on your situation, donations made to our non-profit entities (see below) can be claimed against your taxes.

For tax-deductible donations within Germany, please find all relevant information on the page describing our non-profit legal entity.

For sponsors, we are able to write invoices with explicit VAT, where applicable. Please click here for more information.
