We are pleased to announce the European Operations Technical Conference (EOTC) 2015.
The conference is planned from Monday, April 20 through Wednesday, April 22, 2015 in the IBM Lab in Boeblingen, Germany. Conference language will be English.
This conference addresses the needs of System, Network and Automation Administrators. Sessions are presented by representatives from IBM software development teams and YOU, the product exploiters. Interaction and feedback is both expected and encouraged.
Topics cover a range of IBM system management products, mainly IBM Tivoli System Automation Family, the IBM Service Management Suite for z/OS and IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS. Other topics might be GDPS, OMEGAMON, z/OS Automation Infrastructure, TWS and the IBM Tivoli Systems Management strategy.
Please note that for the distributed System Automation solutions (SA MP & SA AppMan) we are planning to include relevant topics in the overall EOTC agenda.
Additionally we plan to provide workshops running in parallel to the presentations.
Discussions can include product futures and requirements.
As last year we will again require all attendees to sign a non-disclosure agreement. This allows all speakers to talk freely about product futures and plans.
Customer presentations are not only very welcome and appreciated but extremely necessary as a contribution to the success of this conference. I'd like to encourage you to pass on any suggestions.
In the moment we plan to have a conference fee of € 300,00 for the entire conference. The fee will be charged to all attendees (except speakers!).
Non GSE members have to pay an additional amount of € 100,00, but this additional amount is taken into account when a GSE membership contract is signed within 2015.
Travel, lodging and other expenses must be covered by the attendees (including speakers)
Registration will be done in the same way as last year but you will get a separate invitation when we are ready with the registration process.
Please do extend this announcement to others within IBM and to customers and colleagues whom you deem appropriate.
If you plan to do a presentation, please send me your session titles, together with a small abstract and the planned duration as soon as possible. The agenda should be ready by end of January before the registration process will start. Keep in mind that if the agenda is filled the chance to get entrance to the conference without conference fee is gone!
Please send the internet mailing address and the company name of anyone who is interested and has not received this announcement to
We will use this information to send the official invitations and registration information. Registrations for "unknown" customers will be rejected.
