We are glad to invite our attendees who haven’t been awarded a travel bursary and would benefit from a little help to join us at OKCon to apply for our Accommodation Subsidy Programme, providing a simple and basic accommodation solution for a price of 50 EUR per night.
Our accommodation subsidy offers:
a bed in a same-sex (women-only, men-only) dorm room (2-10 people) in an hostel in Geneva
for 3 nights, from Monday 16th September to Wednesday 18th September (please note that we will not be able to offer different dates)
at the price of 50 EUR per night (total for 3 nights: 150 EUR)
Because we are a community-driven, mostly volunteer-run event, OKCon ticket costs are not covered by the accommodation subsidies. If you are awarded an accommodation subsidy, you will be asked to purchase your ticket within the two following business days after you’ll have received our confirmation.
You can find further details, instructions and the submission form on the OKCon 2013 Accommodation Subsidies webpage. The OKCon Accommodation Subsidy Programme starts today (Tuesday 6th August) and ends on Monday 12th August, 23:59:59 GMT.
We are looking forward to receiving your applications. See you in Geneva next month!

OKCon 2013 is happy to announce that we have received a grant to support travel bursaries to help some people with limited financial resources take part in the conference this September. A special thanks goes to the Foundation Open Society Institute (FOSI), a Swiss charitable foundation within the Open Society Foundations, which helped to make this possible.
Our travel bursaries cover:
international travel and transport costs from your city of departure and back
accommodation (which we’ll be glad to book for you)
- lunch at the conference venue on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th September.
