Dear Friends of System Automation,
This is your official Invitation for the European Operations Technical Conference (EOTC) in 2017.
The conference is planned from Monday, May 15 through Thursday, May 18, 2017 in the IBM Lab in Boeblingen, Germany. Conference language will be English.
Remember that the conference will last half a day longer than last year. Begin is on Monday at 1 PM, end is on Thursday at noon.
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 Systems Management products, mainly IBM System Automation z/OS, the IBM Service Management Suite for z/OS and IBM NetView for z/OS. Other topics might be GDPS, OMEGAMON, z/OS Automation Infrastructure, IBM Workload Scheduler and the IBM Systems Management strategy.
Additionally we plan to provide workshops running in parallel to the presentations.
Discussions can include product futures and requirements.
If you have interest in special topics in the area of IBM System Automation z/OS, the IBM Service Management Suite for z/OS and IBM NetView for z/OS, let me know this before end of February and please send me a mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell me the topics you'd like to be addressed. I will try to get them covered in the conference.
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.
We expect a conference fee of € 350,00 for the entire conference. The fee will be charged to all attendees (except speakers!).
Non-GSE members have to pay an additional € 100,00 but if they decide to become a member in 2017 then this amount will be credited.
Travel, lodging and other expenses must be covered by the attendees (including speakers).
Please do extend this announcement to others within IBM and to customers and colleagues whom you deem appropriate.
