A short message to let you know that we plan on opening registration for the UK altnetconf (to be held on February 1st and 2nd) on January 2nd. So you will have time to recover from your New Year hangovers before needing to hover over your computer to try and sign up. We will do registration in two batches, so if you cannot sign in on the 2nd do not panic, we will announce a second sign-up date later.
The total number of attendees is limited (75 on the day) both for logistics, but also to preserve the ‘big conversation’ feel of the event. We will endeavor to record what happens, so if you cannot make it, you should still be able to pick up on what transpires after the event.
Because we are getting our feet wet with this one, I wanted to point out that the Friday is likely to be a later-afternoon/early evening activity where we build the agenda and go out for drinks/eats with the conference taking place on Saturday proper. One item we can discuss at this event is extending the time period to be closer to the length of the original Austin conference.
