I'm sure a lot of you have already passed on this information to your RUGs,
but if you haven't, IDUG would certainly appreciate it if you would. The
deadline of September 16th is rapidly approaching.

While you are in the news passing mood, don't forget to pass on
message about the IDUG Europe discount for RUG members, that she recently
posted to the list about.

The International DB2 Users Group (IDUG) is now accepting presentation
abstracts for IDUG 2006-North America, May 7-11 in Tampa, Florida.
What better way to share your wealth of knowledge and expertise with your
peers than at the premier user event dedicated to IBM's industry-leading
database engine, DB2 Universal Database! Abstracts are due on September 16,
2005 . No abstracts will be accepted after the due date.

Presentation Requirements
IDUG prefers presentation abstracts that outline the details of
implementation, migrating to a new release, or maximizing performance from
any member of the DB2 product family. In addition, IDUG is requesting
presentation abstracts relating to tools and utilities solutions
complementary to the DB2 product family.

IDUG would like all presentations to be heavy in technical nature, absent
marketing themes, and in compliance with the IDUG mission statement.
