Save The Date: October 9th/10th

Our first annual conference will be Friday, October 10th, at Embassy Suites in Burlingame, CA.  There will also be a reception Thursday evening (10/9), and an informal breakfast Saturday morning (10/11).

More details forthcoming, such as speakers, registration, discount code for Embassy Suites rooms, other hotel options nearby, etc.  We’re tentatively planning to have it be a working conference, where people brainstorm, research, build little models, write code, that sort of thing.  A couple keynote speeches, but most interaction will be in small groups, not 1:many talks.

We need volunteers to help organize and run the conference, so if you haven’t signed up yet on the Wiki, please do so (under Conference Coordinator).

Ill try my best to be there, the only problem i might encounter is not being able to fit an intercontinental flight into my student budget..

It is possible we can get some sponsorship to students, but I doubt it.  If so, I’ll let you know.

We’re definitely considering holding a future conference in Europe.  Maybe even the next one.
