Hardware insurance for speakers

The deadline for sending the information for hardware insurance was Sun 12 February. If you have not done it yet, it is too late now, sorry!

FOSDEM provides an insurance for the hardware you bring along at FOSDEM, at no cost. It covers theft and accidental breakage, but only on the location of the campus. They provide a locked room where you can put your hardware in for the night from Saturday to Sunday (and there's also a security staff on the campus for the whole week-end, including at night). Of course, you may also take your notebook (or whatever) with you to the hotel, but then it will not be covered in case of theft or accidental breakage.

In order to have your hardware covered, you must provide the following information, for every single piece of hardware:

  • vendor, model (e.g. Dell Latitude D800)
  • type of hardware (e.g. notebook, network switch, ...)
  • an estimation of its _current_ value (in EUR)
  • a serial number or similar unique ID that is visible on the device


This is final schedule. This schedule has been sent to FOSDEM staff for printing the folders. Thanks to all of the speakers for having accepted to talk to us.
