                        Open Source/Open Science
                Conference Invitation and Call for Abstracts

   Brookhaven National Laboratory will hold a one-day conference,
   titled "Open Source/Open Science", on Saturday, Oct 2, 1999, on the
   Laboratory campus which is located on Long Island NY.  This event
   will bring together scientists and developers to exchange ideas
   about the use of Open Source software (sometimes known as "free" or
   "public domain" software) in science here at BNL as well as in
   other university and laboratory institutions.  There will be a
   session of invited talks, a poster and demonstration area, vendors,
   and tours of some of the Laboratory facility.

   The talks will focus on small and large scale research projects
   which have made use of Open Source software.  Some leading Open Source 
   developers will talk about new software projects that could have a major 
   impact on software-intensive science.  There will also be a presentation 
   on the Open Source software projects initiated by scientists as they join 
   the effort of distributing their work over the Internet.

   During the conference, the Laboratory will be conducting tours of
   various research facilities on site, where Open Source software
   is responsible for a large part of the research work.

   The conference calls on authors of Open Source-like software
   projects, which are related to science in any way, to submit their
   work to be presented in a poster/demo session.  Computing equipment
   and wall space will be made available for setting up posters and
   demonstrate their software. Deadline for abstract submission is
   September 20th.

   Attendance is limited to 400 attendees so we strongly encourage
   those who wish to attend, to register through the conference web
   site. There is a $25 registration fee to cover attendee specific
   costs (lunch) and to limit absenteeism.

   There will be no on site registration.

   Those who wish to attend the conference or submit an abstract of
   your work, please visit the conference web site at


   Thank you for your attention.
