Payments and Donations for DebConf10

There are two organizations which can accept payment and donations for DebConf10, FFIS in the European Union (in euros) and SPI in the United States (in US or Canadian dollars). Either can be used to pay attendee fees. Please use the exchange rate from to determine your payment amount. Other donations are encouraged, and can be paid via the same mechanisms. Using SPI is preferred if convenient for you, especially in US dollars, in the interest of reducing money transfer delays and currency conversion fees.
