20th Debian Birthday – 16th August 2013

We invite everyone to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Debian Project on 16th August 2013 at DebConf 13 in Vaumarcus, Switzerland.


Everyone is invited to the party. Attendance is free of charge. We prefer if you register by email to birthday@debconf.org. If you want to attend the barbecue, registration until 14th August is compulsory. No registration is necessary if you already registered for DebConf.


The birthday celebration will happen at the DebConf 13 venue in Le Camp near the village of Vaumarcus. See the DebConf 13 Travel page for information about how to get there by public transport.


For those unable to attend on-site, all talks will be recorded on video and live streamed. More information about live streams will follow later.
