Questions with answers[edit]

Are any scholarships available to support attendance at OSNCamp?[edit]

Answer: Unfortunately, we have no scholarships at this time to cover travel or other expenses to this free conference. We are looking into ways to support remote attendance, such as providing live audio and/or video. Perhaps we could build on this idea and allow presentations to be delivered via the web, or phone. Possibly someone could deliver the presentation on behalf of a remote attendee, and the remote attendee could answer questions remotely. We can brainstorm on some remote solutions.

If a sponsor wishes to provide funding for such travel, or for enabling better participation for those in other parts of the world, this would of course be very welcome.
