Hello all,

This is a quick note to remind you of the forthcoming Open Computing in
Government 2005 conference (OCG 2005). The conference will be held at
the Manning Clark Centre at The Australian National University,
Canberra, on 18 and 19 April 2005.

Registrations are open at http://www.auug.org.au/events/2005/ocg

Open Computing in Government 2005 has two days packed with a great range
of topics covering areas such as evolving best practices with open
source software; new case studies revealing what's really being done in
Government with open standards, open source, and open formats; and
shared experiences amongst public sector IT, policy makers, IT
officials, interest groups and industry servicing the government sphere.

A highlight of this year's conference is the keynote presentation by
Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Thawte and the Ubuntu project, and
contributor to many, many more open source initiatives.  Come and hear
how open source led Mark to be the first African in space!

A list of speakers, and their focus areas is listed at
http://www.auug.org.au/events/2005/ocg/speakers.html.  No matter what
aspect of IT in government interests you, you'll find a presentation to
spark your interest.

There'll also be plenty of opportunities to network and meet the
speakers and other delegates, both during the two days as well as at the
Conference Cocktail Reception on the Monday evening.

If you have any questions about the conference, please don't hesitate to
