Once again, a wide cross-section of the Linux development community
will gather at the start of July for the UKUUG's summer technical

The conference moves about the UK from year to year: in 2002 we're
visiting Bristol; in 2003, Edinburgh.

Speakers from nine countries will present their work, forming our
largest programme to-date. 

We begin on Thursday 4th July with tutorials on Shared Libraries,
given by Ulrich Drepper, the glibc maintainer; and the Linux Terminal
Server Project, given by the project's founder, Jim McQuillan.
[Places for these tutorials are limited: please book ASAP]

After a Linux printing workshop on Friday morning (CUPS/KDEPrint), the
conference proper begins at lunchtime and runs through to Sunday
