[DebConf18](https://debconf18.debconf.org/), the 19th annual
Debian Conference, is taking place in Hsinchu, Taiwan
from July 29 to August 5, 2018.
Debian contributors from all over the world have come together at
[National Chiao Tung University, Microelectronics and Information Research Center (NCTU MIRC)](https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf18/Venue)
during the preceding week for DebCamp (focused on individual work
and team sprints for in-person collaboration developing Debian),
and the Open Day on July 28th (with presentations and workshops
of interest to a wide audience).
Today the main conference starts with near 300 attendants
and 118 activities scheduled,
including 45- and 20-minute talks and team meetings,
workshops, a job fair, talks from invited speakers,
as well as a variety of other events.
The full schedule at
[https://debconf18.debconf.org/schedule/](https://debconf18.debconf.org/schedule/)
is updated every day, including activities planned ad-hoc
by attendees during the whole conference.
If you want to engage remotely, you can follow the
