When and where

Tuesday, 16 March 2010, Malaga, Spain, colocated with SIMUTools. ICST (the SIMUTools organizer) has arranged a room for us at the conference site.


If you are interested in attending, please put your name below:

  • Tom Henderson

  • Jens Mittag
  • Nicola Baldo
  • Stylianos Papanastasiou
  • Pavel Boyko
  • Kirill Andreev

  • Elias Weingartner
  • Hendrik vom Lehn


The developers meeting will be open without registration, and the conference will provide coffee breaks and lunch. However, ICST is assuming that most or all attendees will be registered for either WNS-3 or SIMUTools main track, so if you plan to attend and you are not also registered and attending one of the other events that week (WNS-3 or SIMUTools), please contact Tom Henderson so that we can arrange for your lunch and coffee.


Here is a list of topics we could talk about: if you are interested in something, please, edit the following list accordingly and insert your name so that we can plan a useful list of discussion topics.
