How the funds will be spent

Funds from sponsors will be used primarily to cover the cost of catering and social events, including lunches, reception, dinner, coffee breaks and an ice cream social. Any remaining funds will be used either to offset manpower costs related to organizing the conference, or towards XLDB-2014. If you are interested in sponsoring a particular item (for example dinner, or ice cream social, or lunches), just let us know.
