Debian Med sprint II in Southport, UK - any objections to the last weekend in January?
Following the very successful Debian Med Bioinformatics Sprint last year
in Luebeck, we propose a second one to be held in the UK early next
year. As I didn't duck fast enough I'm currently the main organiser.
The likely location is Southport (exact venue TBC) on the north west
coast of England. Transport links are generally good with flights to
nearby Manchester and Liverpool.
As before, there will be an emphasis on sleeves-rolled-up packaging work
and mentoring. We will also aim to tackle other specific topics based
on the interests of the attendees. Please see the new Wiki page
[http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMed/Meeting/Southport2012] and add your
priorities to the list.
For now I just want to set a date, so I'll propose the last weekend in
January - the 27th,28th,29th - as per last time. Please let me know if:
a) You want to come but can't make that date
b) You want to come but can't do a weekend
Once I have the date fixed I'll advertise more widely and ask all
prospective attendees to add themselves to the Wiki page in order to
keep track of numbers, and I'll start looking for a venue.
I can't say right now if there will be any travel sponsorship for
volunteers, but hopefully that will be possible.
