Subject [Vote/Poll] Cocoon Conference / Workshop
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2001 16:05:36 GMT
Hi,

I am beginning to put together a possible Cocoon conference/workshop.
The date would be the 27. and 28. September 2001 and  the location
would be here in Paderborn, Germany.

The goal of such an event would be to bring together developers and
users of Cocoon (technology) for 2 days of presentations,  swapping
of experiences, meet your peers, exchanging of views on further
development etc. etc.

The event would be organized by s&n with the support of the
University of Paderborn. I have discussed the plans with Stefano
and some of the other main Cocoon developers.

As we are all - as yet - unsure as to whether there is indeed enough
"critical mass" out there to make an event like this  feasable -
we are now looking to check on how _you_ the users and developers
see such a conference/workshop and whether you
would come and/or submit presentations.

We want to make sure that we do not set this up - and then only 3 people
come.

To help you decide - please also see the following links:

Up to know we have not worked out whether there will be any costs for the
conference - but we will do our best to keep them  minimal. Of course
you would have travel expenses.

So please reply to his mail (and indeed forward it to anyone else you may
think appropriate) and let me know your opinion on  the following:

Attendees
=========
1) I would certainly attend a Cocoon conference in Paderborn on the 27/28th
Sept. 2001
2) I would attend if the agenda was interesting
3) I may attend the conference if time and resources allow
4) I would not attend the conference because...

5) I would like to see presentations on...


Presenters
==========
1) I could submit a presentation on Cocoon (1 or 2)
2) I could submit a presentation on related technologies (XSL, XML)
3) I could submit a presentation on a case study, success story,
business case - to do with Cocoon


Cocoon Developers
=================
1) I think a separate get-together ("hackathon") of the Cocoon developers
as part of the conference would be a good idea /  not needed

Sponsors
========
1) We would like to make Cocoon2001 a success and could sponsor/support
the event by ....


Additional notes
================

Please add anything else you think relevant
