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's OctConf webpage] and in here. == Dates == The conference will run for three days from Monday, March 20th through Wednesday, March 22nd.
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.
=== Social activities ===

* A unique visit to [ CERN]
* A [ Fondue] dinner down-town Geneva
=== Travelling ===
See the [ TPG] web site for full details.

== Accommodation == The conference will run take place in the CERN's main site (Meyrin). You can try your luck and search for three days from Mondayan accommodation in one of the CERN Hostels. Should the CERN hostels be full, March 20th through Wednesdayor should you prefer to stay in Geneva, March 22ndwe advise you to consult your favourite on-line booking portal (,,, etc.) and to contact the hotel directly in order to identify the lowest tariff available for CERN users and collaborators (preferential tariffs may apply in some cases). Hotels in the vicinity of "Gare Cornavin" (Geneva's main railway station), or along "Route de Meyrin", are particularly recommended. Tram number 18 links Gare Cornavin to CERN in 20' (see timetable on the TPG's webpage at this link).  Notice that, by staying in hotel, youth hostel or at a campsite, you are entitled to receive a personal and non transferable Geneva Transport Card for free, which will allow you to use the whole public transportation system of Geneva for the length of your stay for free. This includes buses, trams, trains, and yellow taxi-boats - Mouettes. Just ask for it upon arrival on the reception.
