Final sale: two more weeks, april 14th absolute bottom deadline
Yesterday, the 1000th HAR2009 ticket was sold. A great moment, you
early-birds make this event possible!
To celebrate, the early-bird deadline has been extended one final time.
Up until April 14th tickets will sell for the early-bird rate of
EUR 155,- (with a EUR 5,- discount if you enter the special discount
code ‘FINAL’). That is a spectacular 16.666% discount on the new ticket
price of EUR 185,- going into effect after April 14th. Compared to the
projected door price of EUR 200,-, that’s a whopping 22.5% discount.
For two full weeks.
Folks from the US, who might have only recently learned about HAR2009
from the 2600 site, will also appreciate this final sale. Those
same folks might be interested to hear that there might be a Hackers On
A Plane (HOAP2009) coming over to HAR2009; if you’re interested in
that, contact Nick Farr for details.
So this is your absolute final chance to get your dirt-cheap HAR2009
tickets at the special early-birds rate! (<smallprint>please allow up

Repeat CALL FOR PAPERS
This announcement is all about deadlines, there are just 4 weeks left
in the Call for Papers. Just in case you missed it: about 3 months ago
the CfP for HAR2009 asked for interesting presentations, workshops and
lectures. There is still opportunity to talk at HAR2009, just send in
your proposal before May 1st.
When this series of conferences started twenty years ago, the net was
new and unexplored terrain where only the bold dared to tread, and
where legislation and regulation were absent. That has changed. Today,
the net is all round us, spanning the globe. No aspects of our lives
remain untouched by digital technology. On HAR2009 the new questions
arisen as a result of that revolution will be subject of discussion.
The three main tracks revolve around Dealing with data (DD),
Decentralization (DeCent) and People and Politics (PNP).
The uniting theme is, of course, technology. Explicitly sollicited are
any talks, workshops or other activities that are about pure, hard
technology. But, don’t be afraid to submit anything of a less technical
nature, maybe just skirting the fringes of technology. But, remember,
_all_ talks and workshops should definetely be interesting and
knowledgeable, hopefully be groundbreaking, and possibly, fun.
Your proposals may be submitted to our paper submission system on
https://pentabarf.har2009.org/submission/HAR2009, and are due May
1st, 2009. If you have any questions regarding your submission or the
submission system (pentabarf) be sure to bother the speakerdesk!
Field Day April 18th
Just in case you missed it in the previous announcement: everyone is
invited to join the HAR2009 terrain tour on april 18th. So far, 40
people from 5 different countries and representing at least 9 villages
have signed up to join the sight-seeing. Now that spring has come, we
are in for a lush green Paasheuvel, the area in Vierhouten where
HAR2009 will take place. If you are in any way curious about where the
event will be, make sure to join. And if you are into parallel kingdom,
maybe you can already stake out some flags!
For more information, including the exact times and coordinates as well
as car-pools, please consult the wiki.
