How to help

Each year DebConf is made possible by the efforts of our volunteers and the support of our sponsors.

We invite you to help ensure that DebConf16 will be a success.


DebConf is organised by volunteers, and its quality strongly depends on this team's work, so all help is appreciated.

To volunteer, we have a new volunteer framework set up. See the volunteers page.

Want to Get Involved?

We still have unassigned work available, your contributions are welcome!

  • Sign up to our mailing list at and introduce yourself.
  • Find work in progress on our wiki and git repository.

Without money we can not organise a DebConf. Donating is a great way to help us.

Donations for DebConf16 are accepted through Debian's fiscal sponsor SPI.


SPI can be paid via credit card using Click&Pledge. Click&Pledge can be used to make payments worldwide in USD via VISA, MasterCard or Discover. If the name on the card does not match the attendee name, or you are paying for multiple attendees, please email


The SPI Treasurer ( can be contacted to arrange other payment methods.

As volunteer based organisation, we highly depend on our sponsors to provide a financial backbone for the conference. Each year we make brochures with various sponsorship information.
