Dear All

I've been asked by Hemel Hempstead School to help organise a conference
putting together schools with an interest in Open Source software with
businesses and individuals that can offer support and advice.  I'm based
in Sheffield (and must admit to being a very recent subscriber to this
list) where I've just organised one for schools up here.  I called the
event OSCARS (Open Source Choices and Resources for Schools) and it came
about as a result of this year's FLOSSIE (Free, Libre and Open Source
Software in Education) conference in Bolton where the view was that
everyone there already know about FLOSS and what was needed was a
conference to inform people who don't know about FLOSS.  The reason for
Hemel Hempstead is that I know the new Head there and she said that
Sheffield was too far to come.

If anyone would be interested in being involved I'd be delighted to hear
from you.  The proposed date is Fri 27 Jan 2006.
