BSDCon Europe 2001

On behalf of the organising committee I'm pleased to announce the inaugural
conference for European BSD users and developers.

The conference will take place at the Thistle Hotel, Brighton, UK from 9-11
November 2001.

The conference website is at

The aim of the conference is to provide a focal point for European users
and developers of all the BSD derived operating systems. The format will be
similar to other conferences, with 2 days of technical sessions over the
Saturday and Sunday.

The plan is to use Friday for "focus group" gatherings, where smaller
groups of users and developers can meet to discuss specific aspects of the
project in greater detail or to get more in-depth training.

The focus group day will replace evening BOFs and instead there will be a
full programme of conference entertainment on both Friday and Saturday
evenings, including the Mega Quiz and live music.

If you would like to speak at the conference, chair a focus group gathering
or present a training session then contact the conference organisers at

BSD enthusiasts from all around the world are welcome.

There will also be a number of sponsorship opportunities available for
anyone wishing to assist in making the conference a success. Please contact
the conference organisers if you are interested in sponsorship.
