We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave Conference 2017 to be held at CERN, from March 20th until March 22nd. Octave is a fundamental tool of analysis and research for hundreds of CERN scientists and, like CERN, promotes values of openness, cooperation, diversity, quality and commitment.
The three-day event will be an opportunity for sharing experiences, planning the future of Octave and promoting its use among the scientific community and beyond. There will two open sessions on Monday and Tuesday showcasing Octave and some interesting and successful Octave stories.
We are finalising the details of the programme, which will include: a presentation by Octave's creator and main maintainer John W. Eaton in the CERN Main Auditorium (Monday afternoon), several interesting talks about applications of Octave to various scientific domains, a Code Sprint, and a session to promote the open-source as a model for free, fruitful and successful development.
