Dear Dune,

thank you all for participating in the poll, providing 
substantial mass and a clear answer. It is my pleasure to 
announce the first

           Dune User Meeting
           October 6th-8th 2010

in (or close to) Stuttgart. It would again be great if you 
can post this announcement on the Dune website and inform 
potential participants.

My next tasks are the organization of a meeting venue and 
the setup of a registration website. I will keep you 
posted on this.

In the meantime, we can maybe start discussing our 
expectations from and possible contributions to the 
meeting. My current thoughts are the following: we can 
assume that a participant has visited one of the yearly 
Dune courses in spring and knows about the Dune core 
modules and most likely pdelab. Our meeting should answer 
the question: What more is out there in the Dune world?

I would consider everything interesting listed on the Dune 
external modules site, and even more interesting the stuff 
that isn't. I would propose to have "standard" talks by 
default, plus, if we can detect especially high interest 
in particular modules and if the corresponding developers 
are up for it, maybe some longer tutorial-like sessions.

Please share your thoughts on this.

Kind regards
