We are glad to announce that the registration for the the 7th IGeLU conference is now open – you can register at http://www.library.ethz.ch/igelu/registration.html
The conference will take place at the famous Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich, Switzerland from 11 – 13 September 2012.
Traditionally, a day before the conference, there will be the INUG meeting of the representatives of the National User Groups on September 10th. A separate invitation with agenda will follow.
On Tuesday, September 11th, a welcome dinner will take place in the beautiful Kongresshaus Zürich, situated on the Zurich lake, a great place for networking and some musical surprises.
On Wednesday, September 12th and Thursday, September 13th, guided tours through the city of Zurich and city rides with Oldtimer-Trams will be offered for a petty fee to the participants in the evening.
Meanwhile we received plenty of submissions for presentations but there are still free slots for anyone who has something interesting to share with the user community. So if you do, don’t hesitate and submit your proposal for a presentation or poster session at http://igelu.org/conferences/presentation-proposals
The deadline for submissions is extended till April 30th.
If you plan to come to Zurich – which I hope very much – please book your hotel asap. Zurich is a very popular place where also many conferences take place so that reasonable hotels are booked out soon. A selection of hotels you will find on the registration site. When you book your room, please state that you are participating at a conference at ETH Zurich as many hotels have special discounts for ETH affiliates.
Hope to see many of you in Zurich!
Best regards Jirka Kende
