OctConf 2017 will take place at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland for three days from March 20 through March 22.  
 
 
We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave Conference 2017 to be held at [http://home.cern CERN], near Geneva, Switzerland, from March 20th until March 22nd. The Local Organising Committee is happy and proud that CERN will host this event for at least two reasons: Octave [2] is a fundamental tool of analysis and research for hundreds of CERN scientists; Octave and CERN share and promote the same values of openness, cooperation, diversity, quality and commitment.
 
 
 
The three-day event will be an opportunity for sharing experiences, planning the future of Octave and promoting its use among the scientific community and beyond. There will two open sessions on Monday and Tuesday showcasing Octave and some interesting and successful Octave stories.
 
 
To register officially, please use the CERN conference manager [https://indico.cern.ch/event/609833/ Indico].

Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 22 member states.
