LCA 2006 Embedded Miniconf - Time is running out!
Firstly I apologise to people who receive this email multiple times.
It is now less then 2 months till the Embedded Miniconf at LCA 2006 and
the deadline for the call for participation is rapidly approaching.
The deadline for submission is the 4th of December 2005 and any
submissions **must** be in before this date.
It should also be noted that selection of papers have already
**started**! This means that the earlier you submit your proposal the
better chance you have of presenting.
I have also included the lasted Call for Participation details, which
can always be found at the miniconf website
We hope to see both new and old faces and welcome everyone to come along
and make this Miniconf great!
