OK, the upshot of this was indeed a list of tracks and chairs,
something like this:
holger/bea d - agile
aiste/bea f - social skills
nicolas - science
paul/godefroid - zope/web
samuele - python language and libraries
john pinner/harald? - business again
aroldo/lac - education/neophytes
lac - misfits
armin/carl - refereed papers
If your one of these people I'd like you to add a description of your
within the next week (or email me or the list if the wiki doesn't like
you for some reason).
In addition, there are a few questions:
(1) What are the sizes and numbers of the rooms we've reserved? I
know I've seen this somewhere, I just forget where that was.
(2) How seriously do we want to run tutorials? Charging extra, doing
them on a separate day and splitting the costs with the giver of
the tutorial or just a couple of long-ish talks on the first
morning? If we want to take them seriously, we could do with
finding some energetic person to take care of them.
(3) I read in an old-ish maik that "CERN are interested in a strong
science track and a strong neophytes track." Is there someone at
CERN who can help with making sure this happens? I guess this
means to some extent coordination with Nicolas and a marketing
effort to find scientists who can give interesting talks and
finding out what they want to learn about :)
The current plan calls for the CFP to go out on the 15th of February,
a little more than two weeks time. Is this still on course? I think
so, modulo website stuff...
It's an especially annoying American buzzword for "business use,
as opposed to consumer, research, or educational use".
