Hi all,

The closing date for submitting abstracts for papers to be
presented at GUADEC is now only 2 weeks away. 

Anyone why is planning on giving a talk should send in an
abstract (it doesn't have to be professional, just a short 
description of what you want to present) to
guadec-papers gnome org as soon as possible.

I have attached the original call for papers, which contains a
lot more information, below.

Looking forward to hearing all your great ideas,

Dave, on behalf of the GUADEC planning committee.

Kristiansand is situated on the Norwegian south coast, offering a city 
beach and a vivid summer town life. The most visited attraction in 
Norway, the zoo (Dyreparken), is located nearby Kristiansand.  Here the 
animals are kept in large outdoor space instead of cages.  Perhaps we 
can even find some gnu's there. For those who prefer an excursion to a 
waterfall and Salmon River this can be also arranged. Other options 
include concerts, visit to islands, etc.
