The bid period for the next Fedora Users and Developers Conference
(FUDCon) in the LATAM region is open, and will remain open for a few
more weeks.  The bid process for FUDCon is outlined here:


Two bids have already been received for FUDCon at this point, and the
process will continue soon with an award, a budget, and an open and
transparent planning process:


Bids will continue to be accepted until *September 30, 2010*.  Bids
must be published on the Fedora wiki, and a URL for the bid sent to
the fudcon-planning list:


The majority budget holder, the Community Architecture team, will
consult with the bid teams and regional Ambassador leadership, work
with the Fedora Project Leader to decide on a location and date, and
make an announcement of the next LATAM region FUDCon soon afterward.
Decisions for a FUDCon location are made on the basis of many factors,
including costs, quality and quantity of bid information provided,
facilities available, bid team commitment, and the desire to move
FUDCon around a given region where practical.

Once the venue and dates are decided, planning for the LATAM region
FUDCon event is expected to happen on the general fudcon-planning
list.  Planning will include regular, weekly meetings and use of a
publicly visible ticket queue.  This transparency helps the Fedora
community participate; community members can help organizers plan and
execute the work that goes into the FUDCon event.  That participation
can produce a higher quality event that meets or exceeds attendee

FUDCon is held several times each year around the globe as part of
Fedora's premier events strategy.  You can read more about Fedora
