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.
In addition, *please* add your name to the Participants section of this page so we can plan appropriately.
We are working out the details of the programme, and the call for contributions and abstract is still open. You are all invited to submit an abstract and present your experience with Octave at the conference! 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 [CERN's OctConf webpage https://indico.cern.ch/event/609833CERN's OctConf webpage] and in here.
'''Dates''': The conference will run for three days from Monday, March 20th through Wednesday, March 22nd.
