program page http://wiki.x.org/wiki/Events/XDC2012/Program.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Nuernberg. So if you are corporate
please talk to your managers about funding your trip. If you aren't but
you have something to present, please contact the XOrg Foundation Board
of Directors at board at foundation.x.org for travel funding.

We are negotiating a special conference rate at a hotel nearby (5 minute
walking) please check the Wiki page for more information.

This year is something special as it marks the 25th anniversary of the
first release of X11.
How can we celebrate this better than with Frankonian Beer?
We therefore have a beer hiking trip planned for Saturday, Sept. 22,
where we will walk thru the Frankonian countryside visiting several
brewery beergardens along the way. So if you can spare the weekend,
please stick around and join us for this exciting event!

If you still have time left on Sunday Luc would like to show you around
Nuernberg's recent history.
