Hard to believe but ODC is now only 20 days away! We've now published details of all technical content on www.odc2008.com so if you haven't yet, please check out the various tracks and sessions. There are some last minute updates remaining, and those will be posted in the next few days.

Behind the scenes, there are a lot of activities underway. Last couple of weeks, we've been busy finalizing details such sessions, speakers and times, as well as the food menu and the conference guide. There's also staffing arrangements for booths and labs, as well as shipping of collateral and giveways. It's all been a very interesting and an eye opening experience. More on these topics soon in one of the future blog posts.

BTW, if you have already registered and made hotel arrangements, thank you! For those who are still sorting out the details, just wanted to let you know we've been able to obtain an extension on the discounted ODC hotel rates from some of the hotels through Fri 1/25. So you now have a few more days to save on hotels costs.  Register now.
