Abstracts submissions are now closed for talks but remain open for posters
until March 28th, 2008.

There will be a special Toolkit session on Wednesday morning, April 16th.
This is not training but an opportunity for toolkits users to share
interesting things they have created with our tools as well as for us
to share more technical details of current and new releases.

Please note that we do NOT charge any registration fee - delegates only
need to cover their travelling and accommodation costs. As space is limited
at the conference hotel, we encourage you to register early at:

We look forward to seeing you in Strasbourg!

Kind regards,
