HPCC and HHC announcement of online conference
As has been announced on the forum in previous years, the British HP club, HPCC will again hold a Mini-Conference in 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic this will be held online via Webex. The club has been holding online meetings successfully using Webex twice a month with attendees from Britain, Europe and America, and is confident that an online conference will work using the same format.

The HHC organising committee have decided against holding a conference in 2020 and to support the HPCC conference, encouraging people who wish to attend an online version of HHC to take part in it. We understand that the HHC mailing list is being fixed and will be working again soon.

The meeting will be on Saturday 10 October 2020 from 3pm to 10pm BST (GMT+1) (16:00 to 23:00 in Central Europe, 9am to 6pm US Central Time), to allow people in Europe and in the Americas to participate. HPCC members and guests will be welcome. If you wish to attend please email the conference organisers (conference at hpcc dot uk).

The HPCC club committee invite offers of presentations from members and guests. If you would like to make a presentation, please email the same address as above by Monday 7 September.

It is planned that most presentations should each last roughly 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes for questions and answers, and then a 15-minute break. If there are enough offers, the meeting could be extended to the same times on Sunday. One or more separate threads will be available for people who wish to skip a presentation and talk informally. We have received an offer to live stream the meeting on YouTube, which means that people can watch it without participating, or at a later time.

Further details are available on the HPCC club website hpcc.org/conferences and will be updated.

Wlodek Mier-Jedrzejowicz and Gene Wright on behalf of the HPCC and HHC committees.

RE: HPCC and HHC announcement of online conference
While I will greatly miss the opportunity to meet and chat with many old friends both between sessions and at meals as well as the wonderful door prizes and other activities, I have to give the most sincere kudos and thanks to Wlodek, Gene and all who are making this possible. While I've jokingly referred to my pilgrimages to HHCs in the past as my only chance to be surrounded by folks who are even nerdier than I am, the quality of information, the folks themselves and the entire event has always been a delight. Thank you, and best to all!

So many signals, so little bandwidth!

Using YouTube is most welcome news as it caters for a wider audience who just want to watch without overwhelming the interactive conference system. YT also allows for a streaming text chat, which may allow some of the wider audience a chance to ask questions to be answered too.

That would be most welcome. I do not plan to join the formal conference but I will watch most or all of it on the YouTube channel.

midnight through 7am here.

I'm willing to make an effort but a lot depends on how the day before went.

YouTube for me also, because I won’t be able to follow the entire meeting via webex. Thanks to you all for organizing the conference.
