NAIUA: OpenROAD SIG
OpenROAD SIG Home
If you're at CA-World 2000 this year, make
sure you attend session DNF90S -- the OpenROAD User Group Meeting -- on Monday,
April 10, 2000, at 4:30 PM, and pick up your OpenROAD International User
Group button (pictured to the left). Elena Yatzeck of the University of
Chicago will be chairing this annual meeting. All OpenROAD users are invited to
attend this informal user group meeting. Come meet other OpenROAD users, discuss
user group plans and activities, and learn how to stay involved all year long!
I've just seen the preliminary session grid for CA-World 2000, and I'm writing to urge you yet again to attend CA-World 2000. My Computer Associates colleagues on the conference planning committee can attest that I'm not blindly hawking this product--I'm honestly impressed by the looks of the conference and I think you will be too.
CA-World 2000 looks to be a particularly good one for the OpenROAD product. There are currently over 50 OpenROAD sessions on the preliminary plan, including:
Note that by attending the conference, you will also be able to hear about OpenROAD status and plans directly from John Ainsworth and Durwin Wright, as well as to meet members of the OpenROAD development team. And perhaps most importantly, this is the only place you will ever see such a high concentration of OpenROAD users all gathered together within a few square miles. If you attend the conference, you will receive a CD with the proceedings of all Ingres II and OpenROAD talks.
The reason I'm writing now is that you can save quite a lot of money by using your OpenROAD User Group discount coupon (ask me for one if you need one). Your coupon qualifies you for a $200 discount. By registering online you save an extra $50 USD off your CA-World 2000 conference registration fee (for a total savings of $250 USD).
If you are interested in attending, please register for the "Databases" Solution Area online at General Registration Form. I have been told that when you go to the registration desk onsite you will be able to pick up an identifying ribbon that says "Ingres Track" on it, to help you distinguish yourself from other Databases Solution Area people.
To arrange hotel reservations, you will need to fill out the form at CA-World 2000 Travel/Hotel. As user groups, the NAIUA and OpenROAD groups have recommended that OpenROAD and Ingres users should all attempt to register at the Monteleone, but we can't guarantee that everyone will be able to. Note that all housing for CA-World is first come, first served, so it is again a good idea to register as early as possible to enhance your experience.
Hope to see you there!
