Maybe because of the same reason, Boston Summit was almost (if not)
zero-cost for the foundation. It has been during the last ~2-3 editions
that the foundation started to sponsor some people to attend.

yeah, and it's not really a summit without the folks at westford being able to attend.  If there are other viable ones then we can look at them.

I'm asking my employer whether they have resources to help here as well.

The board will have the weigh the advantages and disadvantages with Portland as a venue versus Montreal.  I will make some inquiries about venue which I currently have as Portland State. Some of you who have attended the first two Linux Plumbers Conference are familiar with that.  it's a perfectly adequate facilitiy that will more than suffice for the summit.
