The International Symposium on Linux will be held in Amsterdam on December 8 and 9, 1994. This event will take place in the RAI Congress Centre. Students get in cheap for about $50, others must pay about $75.
The event is sponsored by the ICCE, University of Groningen, and is organized by Frank B. Brokken, Karel Kubat, and Piet W. Plomp. This non-profit group is planning on lowering the entrance fees if enough attendees register.

The week before all the fun starts in Amsterdam, Linux Journal will be hosting the Linux Track at Open Systems World. This event, previously known as FedUNIX, is a week-long affair and will be held in Washington, D.C. from November 28 until December 2, 1994.
This is a chance to rub elbows with SCO, Solaris, Novell, and Microsoft, who will all be there hosting their own conferences, helping to bring in some of the 10,000+ expected attendees. This is a huge opportunity to present Linux to a large number of government and corporate IS managers, administrators and executives, systems integrators, hardware and software developers, industry analysts and journalists.
The Linux Track will include two days of tutorials and panel discussions presented by some well-known personalities in the Linux Community, including Bob Amstadt, Eric Youngdale, and Don Becker. Currently planned topics include commercial use and future of Linux, Wine, Linux and NASA, legal implications of using and developing tools and applications on Linux, iBCS2 compati-bility, X Windows System on Linux, a beginner's clinic, Linux and the Internet, relationship between Linux resellers and the Linux development community, Linux capabilities, and how to convince your boss/employer/ customer to use Linux.
For those of you who are not able to go to the International Symposium in Amsterdam, Open Systems World is a chance to participate in a conference on the other side of the Atlantic. And those of you who are going to the Netherlands can use the Open Systems World event as a spring-board before your journey.
Keep a watch out here in Linux Journal for more information in the November issue.
