Debian Conference is the annual Debian developers meeting, an event filled with coding parties, discussions and workshops - all of them highly technical in nature.

Previous Debian Conferences have featured speakers from around the world. They have also been extremely beneficial for developing key Debian software components, including the new Debian Installer, and for improving Debian's internationalization.

DebConf8 will take place in Mar del Plata, Argentina.

The exact dates are not yet decided, but it will probably happen during the second and third weeks of August 2008. Which means that this will be the first DebConf to be held in winter.

Most of the info about the conference is currently in the bid page.
