Travel Sponsorship Requests

If you need help getting to and staying in Barcelona, we’d appreciate it if you could ask your organization or company to sponsor the trip. If that’s not possible, we’ll do our best to sponsor some participants.

We have limited funds available, so submititng an application is not a guarantee of receiving sponsorship.

Please make travel sponsorship requests by Friday, September 27th.

GNOME Foundation Members

Please apply for travel sponsorship via GNOME’s travel committee:

KDE Contributors

Please apply for travel sponsorship via KDE e.V.’s travel committee:

All Others

Some communities, like Ubuntu, have funds that community members can request to attend LAS. Please check to see if there is anything that covers you.

Otherwise, please send us a request by e-mailing with:

  • Your name
  • The amount you will need and a breakdown of costs
  • If you are a GNOME or KDE Foundation member (or if you are not)
  • What you are planning to bring to the conference so we can consider your application. For example, are you submitting a talk, are you hoping to volunteer, etc? These are the types of things that help increase your chances of receiving travel sponsorship.

After we receive your request, we may ask you for additional information or may ask that you perform additional steps to finish processing your request. Please note that we will need receipts from all payments to have them reimbursed.

If you will require a visa to attend LAS, please request a visa invitation letter as soon as possible.
