​In the past there were some events that speakers and others received
funding. The policy change depending of relevance and opportunity. Most of
the funding was shared with the event organizers (split the bill between
airfare or hotel bill).

A similar form-driven process was handed by KDE EV for their activities.

This time around the event is somewhat relevant to the area since is the
largest and better organized event for the past 5 years. There seems to
have gain some popularity in the area and even thought I have never
attended to it before. I have got good reviews from ECSL.

Unfortunately there hasn't been a relevant amount of contributions for that
part of the world, and there has always been the intention but not always
the right time to do it.
The average number of participants is around 300 people, from 4 countries
and with good potential to contribute to the project specially on l10n, but
also extension development and such.

I am in touch with the organizers so I could get more specific information
on request. Will give a look at Jan's links and see what else is there to
be done.​
