Following the success of OctConf 2012 which brought together users and developers for five days in July in the French Canadian summer, the first european OctConf will be held in Milan, Italy on June 24-26 2013.
OctConf is a good opportunity to meet Octave developers and users from all over the world and discuss current and future directions of the Octave project.
Please go to the registration website if you wish to attend. There is no fee for participating but registration is mandatory as places are limited. If you also wish to give a presentation please post a one page abstract with your registration. Limited amount funding for travel and accommodation support is available, if you need such support please mention it in your registration.
Hosting Institution and Local Sponsors
OctConf 2013 will be hosted by the MOX Modeling and Scientific Computing lab at the Department of Mathematics of Milan Technical University (Politecnico di Milano), and will be partially supported by MOXOFF.
The meeting will be held on the 7th floor of Building 14 ("La Nave") of the "Leonardo" campus of Politecnico di Milano in the Department meeting room.
Milan is one of the most art and history rich cities in Italy, and it is within 100 miles of all the most beautiful locations in northern Italy including the Alps, the Mediterranean Sea and the lake region. With new high speed train connections it is also about 2 and a half hours away from Rome. There are 3 international airports in Milan all served by Low-Cost companies that offer cheap flights to/from most cities in Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East.
Summer in Milano can be quite hot and humid but rain is very rare. The city has a very serviceable public transportation network of buses and underground trains (metro), there is also a public bike rental service but none of the bike rental stations is located conveniently enough to serve the Politecnico campus at this time yet.
