From: "Dan Langille" 

Hello folks,

The program has been released.  Please visit the website to see
the collection of talks for BSDCan 2005.  We have a varied and
interesting line up for your conference enjoyment.  We will
announce the schedule at a later date. The conference dates are
May 13-14 and that the tutorials will be in the day or two before
the conference.

As previously mentioned, the FreeBSD project will be holding a
developer summit just before BSDCan 2005.  We will be providing
space for the developers and look forward to their participation
in the conference.

Conference prices have not been finalized, but they will be
similar to 2004.

We have updated the Travel page with additional information about
visa and contact details for the residence accommodation.  We
recommend staying on campus.  Prices remain the same as last

See you at BSDCan 2005!

    Anyone living in the Maryland/Virginia area who wishes to organize a group trip to the event can contact me. I am planning on going to BSDCan, and should have some room to take 1-2 other people with me if they need transportation.

    If there is enough people who want to go, perhaps we can rent a bus :)
