Welcome to NordU2000!

Pictures from the conference is now online.

Time for a new conference! After last year’s great success with the NordU99 conference we decided to continue the conference, and also try to move it around a bit so that we could see more of the nice countries in the Nordic Area. This will also give more people the possibility to participate in the conference and we can all meet with people from different countries. The first attempt will be NordU2000 in Malmö, Sweden. The reason for holding the conference in Malmö is that we have a good and strong support and help from the Danish group (DKUUG) and the Skåne Sjælland Linux User Group (SSLUG).

So this year we (I hope) have improved the conference since last year. We have expanded the tutorial program and as a very interesting part we have the two days tutorial on “UNIX Kernel Internals”. A major event in the UNIX area as Dr. Marshall Kirk McKusick will hold this tutorial.

The conference program is also very good and strong. We will have a number of interesting keynote speakers and a line-up of good papers and excellent presenters of different topics during the days.

But what is a conference without a good environment and nice social events? You will be sorry if you miss these! As usually we will have a nice Welcome Reception where you have the possibility to meet your friends and colleagues.

So from the chairman for the conference and from the program committee we all hope that you will have a nice time, and that we will see you all in Malmö.
