Runme --------------+-------------- Dorkbot
'people doing strange things with software'

Ladies and Gentlemen,

You are cordially invited to leave your tents and sleeping bags 
safely at home and join us in Aarhus, Denmark for the Runme Dorkbot 
citycamp 2004. From the 25th-27th August, Aarhus will be filled with 
'people doing strange things with software', as well as more 
traditional campfire activities such as eating, drinking, talking, 
socialising, showing off and relaxing together.

The citycamp will be an informal gathering of people interested in 
software and art where citycampers will be free to do some low-key 
research, develop code and ideas, talk to interesting people and 
enjoy dorkbot-style presentations (5-20 minute presentations with 
feedback sessions), performances and parties.

The Aarhus' Jutland Academy of Fine Arts has kindly donated use of a 
cozy building for these purposes. We will not, however, actually be 
camping there; but the basic accommodation for the citycampers will 
be taken care of (for those who have registered with a presentation 
or other activity). It is also possible to apply for travel support 
of your trip with us.

The R&D camp is brought to you by runme.org and dorkbot.org, but even 
if you've never heard of these groups, you are most welcome to come, 
see and show: all you need to do is register yourself as a 
participant here or as a visitor here. You are, of course, welcome to 
come without prior registration (either as a participant or as a 
visitor), but there is a chance that we won't allow you in because 
the space is full. We'll give preference to those ones registered... 
The deadline for registration is June 15.

There are already some plans in the works: a live programming 
sound/code clash, software vj mega-jam, installation works, and (for 
the intrepid) a pre-citycamp cycle tour of Europe taking in sites of 
geeky interest. However, there is plenty of space for more 
suggestions for events, projects and recreation. If you have some 
ideas, please let us know.

Also, we are distributing this invitation to people and channels we 
are familiar with, if you know someone or somewhere interesting that 
we have missed out, please redistribute this invitation.

We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you around the city 
campfire in Denmark this summer!
