It's time to start planning for our next BriForum conference, to be held in Darmstadt, Germany from October 4-6, 2006. If you would like to present at this conference, we have the details you need to submit your session ideas. The submission deadline is July 31, 2006.
Registration is also open for those wanting to register to attend.
Which BriForum is better? The US or European one?
To answer a question that a lot of people have been asking, we are working to ensure that each of these events is timely and can stand on its own. The main reason we're holding a BriForum in Europe is because a lot of people from Europe told us that they can't travel to the US.
BriForum Europe will have some sessions that are similar to those from the US BriForum (although they'll be updated for timeliness), and some sessions will be brand new. Those who attended BriForum in the US will recall that I promised that attendees of the US event will have online access to the sessions from the European event. So if you attended here in the US, you can check out the videos from any new sessions from Europe for free. (Of course we're using the same cool video technology that we developed for the US conference so you'll be able to feel like you were there in the session.)
The opposite is also true. Attendees of BriForum Europe 2006 will be able to download the videos and other content from BriForum 2007 next spring in the US.
