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.

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.
Nuernberg has a pretty good general public transport information site that covers bus, tram, local trains and underground/metro with some info in English: Nuernberg public transport information.
You probably don't want to do this if you are tired after a long flight. Although it is short and easy you have to find the right stop for the 26 at the interchange at Thon. About every half an hour until midnight:
Get the 32 bus towards Thon, get off at Thon (last stop). Then get the 26 bus towards Berufsförderungswerk (last stop). This drops you at the entrance to the BFW, take the side entrance to the Gaestehaus.
Get the 26 bus towards Thon, get off at Thon (last stop). Then get the 32 bus towards Flughafen (the airport, the last stop).
Get the 26 bus towards Thon, get off at Thon (last stop). Then get the 9 tram towards Doku-Zentrum. Get off at Maxfeldstr. The SUSE building is the large blue building on the right.
Get the 9 Tram towards Thon, get off at Thon (last stop). Then get the 26 bus towards Berufsförderungswerk (last stop). This drops you at the entrance to the BFW, take the side entrance to the Gaestehaus.

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.
Saturday - thai buffet?
On Tuesday there will be a dinner sponsored by openSUSE at Herr Lenz restaurant
Thursday - End of Tokamak party at Downtown?
On Saturday, we'll have an Open Day at Tokamak. Visitors are welcome to join us that day, and possibly for evening/night-time activities. On Saturday we'll also plan the presentations, If there will be enough interests some talks could be redone/improvised for the public.
