MINIXCon 2017 Announcement
After the successful MINIXCon 2016 in Amsterdam, the MINIXCon steering committee has decided to hold MINIXCon 2017 in Munich, Germany, on Sept. 18, 2017. The Chair of Operating System (Prof. Dr. Uwe Baumgarten) will be our patron from the Technical University Munich. The idea is to exchange ideas and experiences among MINIX 3 developers and users as well as discussing possible paths forward. Future developments will now be done like in any other volunteer-based open-source project. Increasing community involvement is a key issue here. We also will make a special effort to get industry involved.
The videos of the MINIXCon 2016 talks can be found here .
Date, Time, and Location
Monday, 18 September 2017 from 09:00 to 18:00 at the
Theresianum, Technical University of Munich.
Giving a Talk
The call for presentations is now open. To propose a talk, please see the Call for Proposals page:www.minix3.org/conference/2017/cfp.html
To attend the conference, you need to register here. The early registration fee is 50 euro (20 euro for students) for registrations before 4 Sept. 2017. After that, it is 75 euro for regular and 30 euro for students. This includes morning and afternoon coffee breaks, and lunch. The lunch will include a vegetarian option.
You can fly to Munich Airport almost anywhere in the world. However, if you are coming from somewhere in Europe within 400 km of Munich, the train is probably faster and more convenient.
Dont be afraid about the prices of the hotels. The Bavarian Beerfast starts on Saturday before the MinixCon2017. The hotel that is physically closest to the campus is Hotel Königswache. You can get more affordable hotels reachable by subway (Stop Theresienstrasse, NO, not Theresienwiese!) If you plan to do some sightseeing in Munich before or after the conference, the Pinakotheken are reachable on foot and of course the Oktoberfest Another attraction are the Eisbach Surfers.
While MINIXCon 2017 is undoubtedly the biggest attraction in town, Munich has hundreds of things to do and places to see.
