Debian to be at the Society for Neuroscience meeting

October 7th, 2010

The Debian project is pleased to announce its presence at the Society for Neuroscience meeting (SfN2010) that will take place November 13-17 in San Diego, USA. Debian will present the upcoming release Debian 6.0 Squeeze and demonstrate its utility as a robust and versatile research environment for neuroscience. Booth visitors will have the opportunity to meet with developers of neuroscience research software, and to get information on available software and recommendations for deployment strategies in research laboratories. Members of the NeuroDebian team will be available to discuss the advantages of integrating research software into the Debian operating system.

If you are going to SfN2010, come talk to us at booth #3815.

About SfN2010

The annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience is one of the largest neuroscience conferences in the world, with over 30,000 attendees. Researchers, clinicians, and leading experts discuss the latest findings about the brain, nervous system, and related disorders.

About Debian

The Debian Project was founded in 1993 by Ian Murdock to be a truly free, community project. Since then the project has grown to be one of the largest and most influential open source projects. Over three thousand volunteers from all over the world work together to create and maintain Debian software. Translated into over 30 languages, and supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the universal operating system.
