Budget and Pricing (2014)

This event is solely community driven and run by volunteers. Please consider to participate your bit, too! This democratic (or even meritocratic) approach is mirrored on every layer, and so is it for the money bit, too.


  • We want to provide everyone the opportunity to come, so we kindly ask everyone to give as much as s/he can afford.**

What does that mean? We have four levels of pricing. Please choose the one that suits your budget.

  • **base**: can be 0, if you cannot afford otherwise
  • **reasonable**: covers basic costs of food and lodging
  • **nice**: all costs covered, including infrastructure and tools
  • **supporter**: you support others that cannot afford their travel, stay and food

Conference Tickets: 24th, 25th & 26th October

  • **3-day ticket includes conference sessions and accommodation (bed/tent, 3 meals/day)**

How to Pay

We will be accepting payments in cash. At this time, there is no online or pre-payment option.

Transparency & Working Budget

The venue charges us 600-1000 INR per person per day for food and accommodation depending on how many people will be sharing a room and how many will be there in total. We do not know the exact price we need to charge: we have still so very many unknown factors… but we would like to keep the amount as transparent and flexible as possible. As we need to cover costs besides food and accommodation, we hope that every participant can pay 1000-1500 INR per day.

Over time we will give some better overview on our actual costs here, to let you know where the money went. If you are interested please contact us, we are very happy to include you in the detailed financing and budgeting. So please consider to help out in that bit, too!

Be aware: Those numbers are still not very clear, and we (hopefully) made the assumptions rather high to “stay on the safe side” in sum. We will update this within time.
