First European Enterprise Linux Conference will combine with Expo to give all round view of Linux

Europe’s first ever Enterprise Linux Conference is to run alongside this year’s Linux Expo from 3-5 July 2001 at London’s Olympia.

The conference, ‘Integrating Linux into the Enterprise’ will give delegates an inside track into the benefits of open source for eBusiness. Sessions will look at the critical requirements for open standards in electronic data interchange (EDI) and the opportunities offered by open standards such as XML. Other sessions will address the benefits of open source programming for commercial projects and eBusiness infrastructure.

Keynote speeches over the three-day event will come from high profile advocates of open source programming including IBM. Other speakers at the event include pioneers of Linux’s open source programming Cambridge hacker Tom Yates and author and Linux expert Toby Miller.

The conference, aimed specifically at addressing the issues faced by large enterprises, will run alongside the Expo which includes a round table debate chaired by Dr. Simon Moores. Dr. Moores is a well-known technology pundit for TV and radio and chairperson for a number of leading forums and IT user groups including the eGovernment Forum. He writes for various publications including Computer Weekly and The Observer.

Other topics under discussion will include systems management, information security and secure networks. A session dedicated to bringing novices up to speed with Linux and open source will also be included in the programme.

Linux Expo 2001 promises to be the UK’s premiere Linux event following the success of last years exhibition which attracted over eight thousand delegates and around 70 exhibitors.
