Flock 2016 bids needed – submit now!

Flock 2016 planning is in progress! Flock is the annual conference for Fedora contributors to come together, discuss new ideas, work to make those ideas a reality, and continue to promote the foundations of the Fedora Community: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First.

Each year, project leadership works with community members who submit bids to bring Flock to their city. Flock alternates between a North American venue and an European venue each year. More Europe proposals are needed soon for next year’s event. So far, there are two bids in France, but for budget reasons, it does not seem like they will be possible. There is another bid in progress for Vienna, Austria.

It’s not too late to get a proposal in for another city! You can also look at the winning proposal for the city that hosted Flock 2015. If you want to send in a bid, two important things to focus on are cost and convenience. One popular feature of the 2015 site was that the hotel and convention center were in the same building. This would be a major boost to any 2016 bid.

If you are interested in bringing Flock 2016 to your city, you can find information on that process on the Fedora Wiki.
