Bergtagung 2007: Call for Entries and Invitation

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Ever gave a talk while standing on a juicy, grassy meadow, in the middle of the forest, in the middle of the night? Everything around you pitch black, ants crawling on your flipchart, a flashlight the only source of illumination? And all that in the Swiss Alps?

How about speaking in your own little classroom, talking about that FreeBSD-based fruit juicer you’ve invented, with your audience of geeks sitting on small wooden chairs made for six year olds? Well, I guess now you can have that.

 ........ Introducing the BERGTAGUNG .. ...... A Meeting of Free Spirits and Open Minds ...

 ..... Somewhere in the Swiss Alps ..... ... Involving Beer (and probably cows) ......

 --[ bergtagung.org ]--

We’re so bloody open that you can dump the abstract of your talk in our wiki yourself.

Submit your talk to: bergtagung.org/wiki/Talks

 

Invitation

If your mind is reasonably open and your software predominantly free, you’re the perfect participant. If that does not sound like you, don’t worry. We have decent mind-stretching equipment and there will surely be some nerds around to fix you up with a liberated operating system of your choice.

Whatever you do, don’t stay at home!
