Actually, of all the conferences I've been to, DebConf (can't speak for this year, but can for other years) is one *few* conferences that asks for an emergency contact name, phone number and email address. I really appreciate this! I travel to Free Software conferences a lot, and if anything bad every happened to me while traveling, I like to make sure I have my wife's contact information readily available so that she can be contacted right away if I'm injured, etc. The USA has a service for international travelers where you can leave your emergency contact info with the airline (which I do), but I suspect that system is hard to utilize. I also have the emergency contact on my person at all times as well, but the conference organizers having it means useful redundancy. I encourage DebConf to continue collecting emergency contact info for attendees that want to provide it. -- Bradley M.
