How much are the tickets?

Tickets cost 5 Euro for both days. For the first time we also have a supporter ticket for 42 Euro, to help FrOSCon out and get a warm feeling back. For companys or persons who want to support the conference by a bigger financial  contribution we also offer business tickets. The normal business tickets costs 100,- Euro for both days. The business plus ticket costs 250,- Euro and contains a conference shirt, as well as catering. For the business tickets of course a receipt over the contribution will be handed out.

What is the business ticket?

The business ticket is the ideal ticket for participants who visit the conference  by order of their company and/or want to support FrOSCon. The normal business ticket costs 100 Euro for both days. The business plus ticket, which includes a conference shirt and catering, costs 250 Euro for both days. Of course a recepit will be handed out with it.

Do you have conference shirts?

We'd like to get a project room...

The Call for Projects is already closed for 2014. All project rooms are already booked.

We'd like to exhibit...

To acquire a booth for a project, you have to participate at the Call for Projects. Officially the call for projects is already closed for 2014, but we have some last spots left. If you are interested write a mail to projekte@froscon.de.

Companies have the possibility to choose one of our sponsor packages which include a booth. Of course, we will also compose an individual sponsoring package for you if you "only" want to represent your company with a booth. In both cases please contact sponsoren@froscon.de.

We'd like to support the event. How?

Next to individuall sponsoring agreements we also offer different sponsoring packages. Please send an email at sponsoren(at)froscon.org to discuss further details. Our sponsoring team will contact you as fast as possible. For smaller contributions we recommand to buy a business ticket.

Can I help?

Of course! Without volunteers FrOSCon cannot be done. All information about volunteering can be found here.

I'd like to write about FrOSCon? Whom should I contact to get more information?

I need a wheelchair, can I come to FrOSCon?

All lecture halls are situated on the ground floor, the building is generally prepared for people with wheel chairs.

Do you have a code of conduct?

The atmosphere at FrOSCon is relaxed and very friendly. But for first time visitors we wrote down a short code of conduct.


Finally the program for 2014 is published. Currently the subconference and developer rooms are still missing. Also minor changes can occur.
