Like last year the university of Aachen helped us organize the Crystal Space conference. It was again a great success. The weather was nice (sometimes a bit too nice) and about 40-50 people attended. On the organizational side we decided to do things a bit differently this year. We now had two tracks: a user track with demos and talks that are useful to people who use Crystal Space and CEL, and a developers track. This last track was more informal with several of the devs talking about an important subject in Crystal Space. In these talks we made plans and discussed things to do in the future.
This conference wouldn't have been possible without the organizational help of the university of Aachen (the ZLW/IMA RWTH-Aachen department) and the financial help of the sponsors: CAE, Software and Support Verlag (software-support.biz), ZLW/IMA (www.zlw-ima.rwth-aachen.de), and RWTH Aachen (www.rwth-aachen.de).
