Debian at LinuxTag 2004

June 19th, 2004

This year's LinuxTag will take place from June 23rd to June 26th at the exhibition and conference center in Karlsruhe, Germany. The Debian project will attend this show quite actively.

The Debian headquarter will be booth F43 in the exhibition hall, where we will demonstrate Debian GNU/Linux on several different architectures, hand out DVDs with a preview of sarge for the i386 and powerpc architectures, demonstrate sub-projects such as FAI (Fully Automatic Installation), Adamantix, Debian-Med and m23.

There will also be a Skolelinux booth/class room in the conference building and a Linux Porting booth (F21) in the exhibition hall where it is demonstrated that Linux runs on a large variety of hardware platforms, with Debian as preferred operating system.

More information.

On Thursday, June 24th, 2004, the Debian project also holds a mini Debian conference in room 2.05 in the conference building with the following schedule:

Not all talks with a relation to Debian fit on the Debian day, hence, some of them will be delivered outside of it, and some of them are part of the regular conference schedule.
