We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave Conference 2019 to be held at [http://home.cern CERN], near Geneva, Switzerland, from March 12th until March 15th.
The Local Organising Committee is happy and proud that CERN will host this event for at least two reasons:
* Octave 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 two-day plus two-half-day event will be an opportunity for sharing experiences, planning the future of Octave and promoting its use among the scientific community and beyond.
Our [[OctConf_2019#Scientific_committee | scientific committee]] is working out the details of the programme, which will include: a presentation by Octave's creator and main maintainer John W. Eaton in the CERN Main Auditorium (Monday afternoon), several interesting talks about applications of Octave to various scientific domains, code sprints, and a session to promote the open-source supported by public institutions as a model for free and successful development. The call for contributions and abstract will be open soon.
The key members of the Octave development team will participate in the conference, both from oversea and from Europe. You can find updated information on the programme in this Wiki page and we are filling the [ Indico] timetable.

== Accommodation ==
The conference will take place in the CERN's main site (Meyrin). You search for an accommodation in one of the [http://smb-dep.web.cern.ch/en/CERN_Housing CERN Hostels].
Should the CERN hostels be full, or should you prefer to stay in Geneva, we advise you to consult your favourite on-line booking portal (www.booking.com, www.tripadvisor.com, www.trivago.com, www.expedia.com 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 [http://www.tpg.ch/ timetable on the TPG's webpage]).
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.
=== Travelling ===
Please read the information in the [http://visit.cern/exhibitions/how-get-cern CERN instructions].
