Hello everyone,

A couple of days back Martijn Faassen and I had the idea to organize a 
European Zope conference. Maik Roeder reminded me of the upcoming Linuxtag 
2000 in Stuttgart. So I contacted the Linuxtag staff and we will have a 
booth. Martin Schulze, my main contact, will  also try to get a Zope 
Conference setup for us, which would give us 2 rooms for one day fitting 50 
people per room, where we can have talks and discussions.

The Linuxtag will be from June 29th (Thursday) to July 2nd (Sunday). It 
will be in the Exhibition Center (Messegelaende) in Stuttgart, Germany.

I know we have little time to organize the conference (26 days). We have 
one day to fill with speeches and discussions, so please let me know if 
there are people willing to give some talks or want to have "Special 
Interest Group" discussions, like E-commerce, XML or Portals in Zope. I 
would also like to know, who would be able to come, so I can give the 
Linuxtag staff some feedback.

Here are some subjects I thought we could have: The ZDP Portal (Maik 
Roeder, ....), XML in Zope (I know Martijn F. did a lot of work there. ;-), 
An Introduction to Zope for newbies (Stephan Richter -- me), ZClasses, 
Python Products for Zope and so on.

I also would like to hear some talks and discussions about Python products 
that Zope uses, such as PyGres, PIL, mxDateTime and other modules. I would 
be very glad, if some Python-only people would show some interest too. :-)

The speeches and discussion can be held in German and English (preferred, 
since we expect people from other countries).

So, everyone who is interested in preparing a talk or discussion, please 
send me an E-Mail and I will compile it to a schedule. The rooms will be 
open for us between 9:00 am - 8:00 pm on Thursday the 29th.

Let's make this a successful event!
