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.

==== By train ====
 
Coming from the Geneva railway station at Cornavin
 
 
 
Tram - Take the number 18 tram to "CERN" which is the final stop at the CERN entrance.
 
 
 
Ticket costs 3 CHF full-fare / 2 CHF reduced-fare (Ticket "Tout Genève" on the ticket machine).
 
 
 
See the [http://www.tpg.ch/ TPG] web site for full details.
 
 
 
==== By car ====
 
 
 
* From Switzerland
 
 
 
Follow signs for "Aéroport", "Lyon" and "Meyrin".
 
 
 
Once you are in Meyrin, follow signs for "St. Genis" (which is just beyond the border, in France).
 
 
 
Before reaching St Genis, the CERN site is on your left on "Route de Meyrin", just before you reach the border.
 
 
 
* From France (département of Ain)
 
 
 
Follow signs for "Gex" or "St. Genis".
 
When you reach the border, CERN is on your right immediately after passing through customs.
 
 
 
See [http://visit.cern/exhibitions/how-get-cern-car Parking] for parking information.
 
 
 
==== By plane ====
 
Coming from the Geneva International Airport at Cointrin
 
 
 
Taxi - approximately 35CHF.
 
 
 
Bus - First take a public transport ticket from the machine you will find at the exit to the baggage collection hall, just before customs control. Then:
 
 
 
Option 1: Take bus Y direction "CERN" and get off at the CERN stop opposite the large Globe and the CERN site.
 
 
 
Option 2: Take bus 23, 28 or 57 and get off at the stop "Blandonnet" and then catch the Tram number 18, final stop "CERN".

Participants OctConf 2017 first day

We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave Conference 2017 to be held at 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 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 CERN's OctConf webpage and in here.

Dates: The conference will run for three days from Monday, March 20th through Wednesday, March 22nd.

Location[edit]

The upcoming Octconf 2017 will take place at CERN (European Center for Nuclear Research)

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.

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[edit]

Two social events have been foreseen, besides the coffee and the lunch breaks:

  • A unique visit to CERN
  • A Fondue dinner down-town Geneva

Suggestions for Sessions[edit]

Approximately half of each day will be devoted to presentations. The remainder will be used for informal discussions, code sprints, etc.

Please propose session topics in the schedule below. The actual time slot you pick is not important--we can re-arrange the schedule later--but we need to know what topics are of interest.

In addition, if you have a poster, rather than a full presentation, there is a separate sign-up sheet below.

Schedule[edit]

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).

The indico timetable will be used as the official schedule. This one here should mirror that one.
