Subject Application Period Opens for Travel Assistance to ApacheCon US 2008
Date Thu, 25 Sep 2008 15:37:04 GMT

The ApacheCon US 2008 conference is getting closer and will again
feature also some JCR and Jackrabbit content. If you are interested in
participating but would have a hard time financing the trip, the
Apache Travel Assistance Committee may be able to help you. See below
for their announcement about the financial support that the Apache
Software Foundation is making available to qualified developers.

The Travel Assistance Committee is taking in applications for those
wanting to attend ApacheCon US 2008 between the 3rd and 7th November
2008 in New Orleans.

The Travel Assistance Committee is looking for people who would like
to be able to attend ApacheCon US 2008 who need some financial support
in order to get there. There are VERY few places available and the
criteria is high, that aside 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, accomodation and
entrance 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 must 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.

More information can be found on the main Apache website at
http://www.apache.org/travel/index.html - where you will also find a
link to the application form and details for submitting.

Time is very tight for this event, so applications are open now and
will end on the 2nd October 2008 - to give enough time for travel
arrangements to be made.

Good luck to all those that will apply.


The Travel Assistance Committee
