The organizers are pleased to announce that JuliaCon 2018 will take place at University College London over Aug 7-11 (the last day being the hackathon). This will be our first European venue, and we hope to get strong participation from developers and users worldwide.
The JuliaCon committee is composed entirely of volunteer organizers and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments.

JuliaCon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, national and ethnic origin, text editor choice, or tabs vs spaces preference. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Offensive or sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including formal talks and networking between sessions. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference (without a refund) at the discretion of the conference organizers. Our anti-harassment policy can be found here.
