[[File:octconf2017.jpg|thumb|left|500px|Participants OctConf 2017 will take place first day]] We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave Conference 2017 to be held at [http://home.cern CERN], near Geneva, Switzerland for three days , from March 20 through 20th until March 2222nd. 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].
In addition, *please* add your name to the Participants section of this page so we can plan appropriately.
 
We are hopeful that the key members of the Octave development team will make it, both from oversea and from Europe. You can find more updated information on the programme in the [https://indico.cern.ch/event/609833 CERN's OctConf webpage] and in here.
 
'''Dates''': The conference will run for three days from Monday, March 20th through Wednesday, March 22nd.
== Location ==
=== Geneva, Switzerland ====== Venue ===The upcoming Octconf 2017 will take place at [http://home.cern/ CERN ] (European Center for Nuclear Research). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CERN.
=== Travelling ===At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.
== Dates ==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.
The conference will run for three days from Monday=== Social activities === Two social events have been foreseen, March 20th through Wednesday, March 22ndbesides the coffee and the lunch breaks:* A unique visit to [http://visit.cern/tours CERN]* A [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fondue Fondue] dinner down-town Geneva
== Suggestions for Sessions ==
=== Schedule ===
During the daytime: CERN offers many areas where people can socialize and/or discuss, informally. For instance, the CERN main restaurant is open until 23:00 (11:00 PM).
