The JSUG (as an official partner) is organizing a trip to the GeeCON conference in Cracow/Poland, May 7-8, 2009. We will go there by train and have a lot of fun meanwhile (including a little lottery). We are planing to have some presentations, challenges and much more during the trip, so bring your notebook (power should be supplied in the train).
But not only the transportation will be organized by us, also the tickets (special reduced prices by GeeCON), the accommodation and an evening program for the spare time.

Note: Please register by adding your name and email address in the section below until the 25th April.

Special thanks to our sponsor Adobe who made it possible for us to offer you reduced prices and other surprises :)


Please provide your email address so we can inform you about further details.
Optionally you can add some links to profiles, social networks, personal websites, and the like so that the other know who you are and what you are doing/working on.

Foreign Currency

As Poland does not have the Euro yet, you have to pay in Zloty (10 PLN = 2.3 EUR; 1 EUR = 4.4 PLN).
The only thing you have to pay in Euro is the tickets (except the conference ticket which you have to pay via bank transfer). Everything else (accommodation, etc) has to be paid in Zloty.
