This is a quick update on the 2013 LODLAM Summit. By tomorrow, official acceptances will be going out to everyone who has applied so far. We’ve got an amazing group coming together from around the world and I’ll be posting attendees as they are confirmed (or as I figure out a better way for importing users with WP Multisite/BuddyPress) on the site. We also have 4 teams registered for the Challenge already, with several more lined up. Remember, December 1 is the last day to post your Challenge entries in the first heat. Let me know if you have any questions.
We have some great news in that we’ve been able to add more spots for the Summit. Because of this, we will now allow up to 2 delegates per institution, and will have a rolling admission. I’ve added 40 spots that will be available on a first come, first served basis, and the number of spots available will be posted near-realtime at http://summit2013.lodlam.net/apply. I’ve heard from a lot of people who weren’t able to secure travel funding prior to the Nov. 1 deadline, so this gives people a bit more time to sort that out.
Thanks everyone for continuing to spread the word about the LODLAM Summit. This will be an amazing event to connect with people and projects around the world within this space and give us a unique chance to collaborate and work together toward common goals.
Chair of the 2013 LODLAM Summit Organizing Committee
