The 2012 EMEA FUDCon will be held in Paris, France on 13-15, October 2012.

FUDCon is the Fedora Users and Developers Conference, a major free software event held in various regions around the world, usually annually per region. FUDCon is a combination of sessions, talks, workshops, and hackfests in which contributors work on specific initiatives. Topics include infrastructure, feature development, community building, general management and governance, marketing, testing and QA, packaging, etc.

Universcience is a building dedicated to science discovery, ( previously called "cite des sciences et de l'industrie" ), we will be located in the basement, in a part dedicated to computer science Openstreetmap Pictures

Beware, there is currently lots of construction work near the building, so it may not be straightforward to enter, please keep a eye on this page so we can provide up to date information.

Contact us to join our team! More about our current tasks there.


Please add your name to the list if you will attend. Also, please indicate the following:
  • Put an X in the $$$ column if you need funding to attend, and visit the FUDCon ticket tracker to make a funding request. We have a limited budget and will work hard to fund as many people as possible. We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event. We are making arrangements for attendees from other geographic regions to encourage specific initiatives such as future FUDCon events, but preference may otherwise be given to people in EMEA.
  • Put a V in the Veg column if you would like vegetarian fare for any meals that we provide during the event. If you prefer vegan fare, please mark that column VV. We will do our best to make sure everyone is accommodated! Note: "Hell No" and similar statements are offensive to some and should not be included in this column.
  • Put your T-shirt size in the Size column, so we can have an idea about what sizes to have available. Only Unisex (Mens Sizes will be ordered)
  • Roomsharing:
    1. If you want or need to share a room, mark yes in the "Roomshare?" column.
    2. Once you have a roommate, both of you should mark your roommate's name in the block as well.
    3. If you need a roommate, look for someone with just a yes in the column, and contact them via email. If you encounter any problems, let the organizers know.
Use the Comments section for anything else you think organizers need to know, or to offer or ask for space or rides.
Fedora means freedom — registration is free and open to everyone.
You can pre-register anonymously, but now is a great time to create a Fedora account if you don't have one! For those new to Fedora, you can register in the Fedora Account System and follow the instructions there to complete the FPCA. This process usually takes less than 5 minutes. The information you enter below is viewable by anyone, and is considered Publicly Available Personal Information.
Budget is tight!
We typically cannot fund everyone who wants to attend. You can save quite a bit of money by carpooling or busing, and sharing hotel rooms. We will make every effort to have FUDCon be as affordable as possible.

Lodging / Hotel

As detailed on the mailing list, you can book your hotel now. We have locked 30 twins (2 separated beds) in the IBIS hotel really close to the second venue (Sun-Mon). But that will do also for the first one.

To book the hotel, just follow what is detailed in the email. If you are looking for a roomate, try to contact the other one listed on the above table. The price (81€) is for the room, same price for 1 or 2 beds. Please add in the above table if you need help looking for a roommate. The rooms are too small for a third bed, we can't manage that.


   31-35, quai de l'Oise
   75019 PARIS

See the Map. The venue labelled "Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie".
