Hello world,

as you might know, we're busy organizing DrupalCON Europe in Brussels  
(http://groups.drupal.org/drupalcon-brussels-2006).  It will take  
place after OSCON Europe, O'Reilly's Open Source conference (http:// 

Please find attached a tentative schedule.

-------------- next part --------------
We're going to organize a one-day GovCamp, a BarCamp-style conference  
about technology in governments.  GovCamp is organized by Bart Van  
Herreweghe, who works for the Belgian prime minister.  Brussels is  
the heart of the European Union and so there is always lots of  
government stuff happening here.  This might be interesting for many  
of the CivicSpace users who use Drupal for political campaigns or for  
those who use Drupal within government institutions.

If all goes well, we'll have two dedicated Drupal days on Friday and  
Saturday.  Sunday might be a third DrupalCON day depending on the  
availability of the venue.  If anything, there will be a BarCamp on  
Sunday organized by Peter Forret.  BarCamp itself will like take  
place elsewhere in Brussels, so if we can't get hold of a venue for  
Sunday, we can always hang out at BarCamp.  Johan Janssens, Joomla's  
lead developer, said he would be at BarCamp so chances are there will  
be a dedicated CMS track.  A BarCamp could be really fun! :-)

Note that we are still waiting for confirmation from the venue(s) and  
bear in mind that we might have to shuffle things around!  Mixel  
Kiemen (http://drupal.org/user/46625 - info at mixel.be) is taking a  
lead in securing the DrupalCON venue.  I'll be away from the keyboard  
the next couple days so make sure to CC Mixel if something comes up.   
We won't publicly promote OSCON/GovCamp/DrupalCON/BarCamp until the  
DrupalCON venues are confirmed but I figured a status update to the  
development mailing list was in order.  Please don't book plane  
tickets yet.  Hopefully, we get confirmation soon.
