Istanbul workshop: new venue & web live streaming

UPDATE: Presentations and papers are available on the workshop webpage.

Since many people were unable to reach Istanbul due to the present flight disruption over Europe, the workshop has been limited to Monday 19 April only and a video streaming service has been set up.

Most importantly, since live streaming has become an almost crucial need, we have changed the event venue: the Sozbir Hotel internet connection has been deemed not reliable enough.

The workshop is being held at the Ozyegin University, on the Asian side. A map with directions is available here.

The video stream is currently online at: http://www.elluminate.com/trial/p.go?pk=1T3RCNeJj0n6N5ag

Please be aware that simultaneous connection is limited to 25 users and you need to have the latest version of java installed on your PC.

Here you can test your java installation and, if needed, upgrade it: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp [19apr10]
