OctConf 2017 will take place at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland for three days from March 20 through March 22. 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.

Location

Geneva, Switzerland

Venue

The upcoming Octconf 2017 will take place at CERN (European Center for Nuclear Research). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CERN.

Travelling

Dates

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

Suggestions for Sessions

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

  • regarding "social activities" :
 ** We can offer, as I mentioned, a visit to some interesting CERN sites. This can take from a few to several hours. It could be planned for Wednesday afternoon.
 ** For the evening of Monday, or of Tuesday, we thought we could have a "Fondue" dinner downtown Geneva.  There are good and affordable Fondue restaurants that can be reached by tram within 30/40 minutes from CERN.
 ** During the daytime: CERN offers many areas where people can socialize and/or discuss, informally. For instance, the CERN main restaurant is open until 11pm.
