http://www.apachecon.com/ - 14 August 2000 - The Apache Software

sponsored by Covalent Technologies, IBM, Sun Microsystems, Oracle and 
ID-PRO will be held at the Olympia conference centre, London between 
23-25 October, 2000.

ApacheCon Europe 2000 will provide a European focus for the Apache 
developer community, bringing together the key technology vendors, 
senior Apache figures and open-source followers and observers from 
around the globe, in response to the growing European interest in 
open-source software.

- Kirill Bolshakov, working toward his PhD at Saint Petersburg State 
Technical University in Russia, will outline concepts to enable 
application service providers (ASP) to host untrusted 
Java/XML/XSP-based applications;

module for Apache.

"ApacheCon Europe 2000 is the only event in Europe, where the Apache 
developer and user community can meet to shape the future of Apache 
and open-source software movements," said Rasmus Lerdorf, ASF Board 
Member and presenter of the Introduction to PHP session. "Our 
conference is designed to provide the European open-source community, 
with all necessary resources for Apache-related initiatives and to 
serve as a forum for the continued evolution of the open-source 
movement in Europe".

Apache-related and various other freeware exhibits, speaker sessions, 
keynote addresses and informal Birds-of-a-Feather sessions are all on
