The partners program page has been updated to include a schedule of the activities planned.

Program Released


The 2006 team proudly presents.... The Program!. We do apologise for the delays in getting the program out but I'm sure you'll agree that it was well worth the wait. With only one week left for early bird registrations I think it really is time to register and secure your seat at whats shaping up to be the best yet.

Registrations are open


Yes its true.. registrations for 2006 are officially open. You will need to be in quick to qualify for your "early bird Discount" so head on over to the Registration page and secure your place at the conference now. -- see you all in January

Registration pushed back


Unfortunately, due to some technical issues we've had to push registrations back a few days.. We do sincerely apologise for the delay, but the payment system isn't quite working yet, and we need to wait for business hours to have the problem corrected! We've updated the Dates Page to reflect this. We're also just running a fraction late announcing speakers - We should hopefully do this tomorrow if all goes well.

Dates Changed


Due to the overwhelming number of paper submissions, we have had to push back the dates for notifying and announcing the successful authors. This has also had the unfortunate effect of pushing the Program and "Early Bird Registrations" back a few days. Apologies go out to anyone that has been inconvenienced by this delay. New dates can be found in our Dates Page

Call For Miniconfs Goes out


Mike releases the untamed "Call for miniconfs" into the wild and with luck we should soon hear the "pitter patter" of little miniconfs from all over the world :). A mature specimin of a "CFM" can be found here

Call For Papers opened


Well, now the nitty gritty starts! Head on over to the Call For Papers page, and submit an abstract for presentation at 2006. We'd love to see you here, so don't be shy.. If you have something you're passionate about, and want to tell the rest of the OSS community about it, submit an abstract!
