New for Gelato ICE 2006

An exhibition area and a program track targeting corporate developers and IT decision makers have been added to Gelato ICE 2006. The expanded technical program will include enterprise-specific topics like enterprise graphics and hardware reliability. In the exhibition area, HP, Intel, Itanium Solutions Alliance, and SGI will be showcasing some of the newest technology solutions.

Also new is integrated technical content to complement the collocated Itanium Solutions Alliance Developer Days to be held on April 26-28. Developer Days are Alliance-organized workshops established to facilitate porting of targeted applications to Itanium platforms. Software developers receive training, technical assistance, and industry-leading tools from Alliance Founding Sponsors and members. Registration for Developer Days is separate from Gelato ICE registration.

The week-long combination—Gelato ICE 2006 and the collocated Itanium Solutions Alliance Developer Days—will be the year's highpoint for those wanting to learn more about using and developing Linux on Itanium architecture. Anyone working with this platform—or thinking about working with the platform—should attend. Early Bird pricing ends March 25, so register now.
