[Sent on behalf of the Travel Assistance Committee.] -------- Original Message -------- 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. 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 online application and details for submitting. Applications for applying for travel assistance will open on 27th July 2009 and close of the 17th August 2009. Good luck to all those that will apply. Regards, The Travel Assistance Committee --------------------
