On February 20, 2012, the DebConf committee decided that DebConf13, the
Debian developer conference of 2013, should take place on the shores of
the Lake Neuchâtel in Switzerland, most likely in the middle of
August. More details may be found on the [1] organizers' wiki.

In a two hour meeting on Monday evening, the Swiss bid narrowly won
over the bid from Riga, Latvia. Teams had been preparing their bids
since mid-2011, seeking venues and local sponsors in their respective
cities and countries. 

The two bids both had character and unique identities. On the one hand,
the Riga proposal was totally centered on city and university life. On
the other hand, the Swiss bid aimed to bring DebConf to a setting that
is known for its natural beauty.

"Our proposal strongly focuses on the community gathering aspect of
DebConf. Accomodation, hacking spaces and talk rooms will be at the
same place with a beautiful view over the Lake Neuchatel and to Swiss
alps. We'll have the whole holiday camp exclusively for DebConf", said
Gaudenz Steinlin, member of the Swiss team.
