open systems and Internet), a Croatian NGO, where I am the president,
and my day work is at FER (http://www.fer.hr/en

Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, as an Internet services
architect. I started using SuSE with version 8.2.
This is not a full proposal with details and prices yet, I haven't had
time to prepare it since we were shoulder-deep in organization of our
jubilee 20th open source and free software conference DORS/CLUC

organize in cooperation with another NGO - HULK - Croatian Linux users'
Some more info on our conference:
In short, we would like to propose Dubrovnik for oSC14. The conference
would be held at University of Dubrovnik, we have contacts there with
which we would collaborate. In addition to ~10 volunteers from our
organizations, I also expect students from Dubrovnik to register as
volunteers for on-site conference support.
I will gather and systematically arrange more info throughout the next
week and get back to you, but I would also like to know if you guys are
initially interested. :-)
Yes, we are in general terms interested and appreciate your interest in
In 2014 we would like to move the conference to an earlier time in the
year, to avoid travel premiums in the summer and avoid conflicts with
other events. Do you see any issues/conflicts with this, considering
that you already organize an event in May (presuming you will have your
existing event again in May next year)?
Having a potential location and volunteers lined up is a great start,
can you provide more information about Dubrovnik?
It will be important that oSc is it's own event. We had a co-located
event for oSC12 which resulted in a large number of people attending.
However, many in the community felt that the message about openSUSE got
a bit lost in the shuffle and that the event did not have similar
benefits to the openSUSE community that previous conferences had.
We would like to have one of the people organizing oSC14 at the upcoming
oSC13, hopefully that can be arranged should you be interested in moving
forward with the proposal and should the proposal be accepted.
Thanks again for your interest. Looking forward to additional information.
