#464 Funding request for Jiri Eischmann and Jaroslav Reznik
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by eischmann.

Please set the "Component" below to the correct event for your request.

Tell us the following:

  • What do you need covered? (Please estimate the costs in USD: hotel $X, travel $Y.)

Accommodation for the FUDCon days (May 22-26) in the conference hotel. We both have the same itinerary and are willing to share a room. We don't know which hotel will be picked for sponsored people, but based on the recommended hotel prices the cost shouldn't exceed $400. If approved, do we have to book it ourselves?

  • If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful? (Yes/No?)


  • If Yes, specify the minimum amount you need covered to facilitate your attendance.


  • What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)

We'd like to deliver a keynote on the state of the Fedora Project technology and community-wise. If we're not picked for the keynote, we'd like to deliver it as normal talks.

  • If you are requesting airfare, include complete flight information such as flight numbers, desired departure and arrival airports, and times. Also let us know if you have specific time restrictions.

We don't require airfare sponsorship.

  • Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?

Yes, we need a visa. It's usually one week, but we'd like to have all the papers necessary as soon as possible.

  • Include any additional, relevant information.

We will sponsor you two for '''three day's lodging''' in our chosen hotel during FUDCon.

Please fill in the form[1] '''before''' 2:00 April 28th UTC so that we can book the hotel in time for you.

The subsidy is only about the hotel payment, not travel fee. The hotel fee was paid by the organizer as in ticket #473. So I'll close the ticket here.
