Tokamak 4 Oxygen 3 2010
The fourth Tokamak Plasma Meeting and the third Oxygen Gathering will take place in Nuremberg, Germany on February 19th to 26th.
We will be hosted by Novell in the openSUSE offices in Nuremberg. The community space includes a large meeting room with AV infrastructure, a cafe-style area and a hacking bar. And of course you benefit from being only metres away from the KDE SVN server.
SUSE Linux Products GmbH

Tokamak 4 Location Map shows where things are. Note that the accommodation for the first 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) is not the same as for the rest of the week.
Nuremberg is easily reachable by air or by train. The nearest airports for intercontinental flights are Frankfurt and Munich, and Nuremberg is served from other European hubs such as Paris Charles De Gaulle and Amsterdam. Nuremberg is only a few hours by train from most of the rest of central Europe.
You can reach the SUSE office in 6 minutes by tram from the rail station by taking the number 8 tram towards 'Thon' from the tram interchange in front of the railway station, follow the square 'Tram' signs. Alight at 'Maxfeldstr' as shown on the signs inside the tram and go to the SUSE office at Maxfeldstr. 5.
From the airport, a taxi will cost 10-14 EUR and takes about 10 minutes. Alternatively, take the U2 metro from outside Arrivals (any train), alight at 'Rennweg', leave the station by the south exit (in the direction of travel, go to the tram stop in the middle of the road on your right as you exit the metro, and get the number 8 tram towards 'Thon' as above.
Maps and ticket details coming soon.

- Laptop/desktop for hacking with KDE trunk on it for: Lukas Appelhans
- Helpful for hacking on the 3 Intel devices (not vital, but would preed thing up especially the ethernet adaptor):
- usb hub (preferably powered)
- usb-to-ethernet adaptor (unreliable drivers for the internal wifi)
- extra storage/file transfer can be done with the ethernet adaptor of with microsd/thumbdrives
- usb keyboards and mice would ease things a bit too since it supports them
- For presentations a video camera would be nice, preferably with a remote microphone. (available in openSuse offices?)
We will be focusing on the KDE SC 4.5 release of Plasma, with a particular attention on feature completion, polishing and quality improvements across the code base. Activities and Plasma Mobile will also be topics of interest.
Oxygen, finishing it up for 4.5 plans for the future.

Starting on day two we will split up into small groups to focus on specific topics and challenges. The breakout group tracks will start with short presentations designed to share important information about the topic of interest to get everybody up to speed. A schedule for each of the presentations will be posted closer to the start of Tokamak 4.
Some people will stay with a specific track for the duration of Tokamak 4, but everyone is welcome to drift between the different breakout groups to bring their needs and ideas to bear.
