pre-etch release BSP in Zürich

We are going to join the BSP marathon with two bug-squashing parties in Zhurich. The main one will be on the weekend of 07-08 October 2006. A small BSP took place on Saturday, 09 September 2006.

Both events take place in the

Cluster room of the Artificial Intelligence Lab
University of Zürich
Andreasstrasse 15
8050 Zürich

which is here. The nearby station is "Bahnhof Oerlikon".

Getting there is simple: arrive at Bahnhof Oerlikon by train, tram, or bus, then make your way east (away from the city) to the two adjacent train bridges. Under those bridges are Schaffhauserstrasse and the tram 14 rails. Between the two bridges, Andreasstrasse begins. Walk down about 200 metres and get into the large, grey block to your left (you'll see signs for UniZH, HSO, Novo-Nordisk, Atupri, Symantec). Take the stairs right behind the entrance to second floor. The lab is at the far side (north), so you have to cross the bridge. Once in the hallway, walk to your right and duck into the forth door to the right.

I'll be at the location after 9 on Saturday and Sunday. The evenings are flexible and could be spent coding or enjoying the Zurich nightlife. If you have specific ideas, please add them here. Saturday night's dinner is at Cheyenne.

Due to several constraints, nothing it planned for Friday night.

Infrastructure

Plenty of space in the room.

Real fast connection directly to ftp.ch.debian.org and the Internet2. Private IP addresses (public ones can be arranged on request, only SSH access though).

We have cables, a switch, and a wireless access point, thanks to Tilman Koschnitz from the ETH Maschinenlabor.

A limited number of machines are available for our use. Please let me know in advance if you cannot bring a laptop and thus need a machine to work on: <madduck AT debian DOT org>

A separate "lounge" is available for discussions and relaxation.

Facilities (inluding a shower), the station, restaurants and supermarkets are within walking distance.

Supplies

Thanks to our sponsors (see above), we can provide food and (non-alcoholic) drinks for all attendees. Please let me know if you need special arrangements: <madduck AT debian DOT org>

Travel reimbursement

If you know you need travel reimbursement, please contact me and let me know an approximate amount as soon as possible. Funds are limited. <madduck AT debian DOT org>

I need receipts for everything, and all expenses must be pre-approved.

Accomodation

Fill in your name if you need a place to sleep. Fill in the "staying with" column when you found one. Arrange with your host whether to bring sleeping bag and/or mat.

Attendants

07-08 October

This will be the official Debian BSP in Zurich -- on Saturday and Sunday all day, evenings are flexible. If you want to attend, please add your data to the table. If you cannot attend in person, you may want to join us remotely on the #debian-bugs/irc.debian.org IRC channel.

Due to several constraints, nothing it planned for Friday night.

Note that I would prefer to restrict the number of attendants to 10 in the interest of productivity. However, I do not want to exclude anyone, so if there are already 10 confirmed and you still want to join us for some serious squashing of bugs (rather than partying), by all means...
