While the Code Sprint on Saturday 4 October is a free part of the conference, we need to have an idea about who will attend. So when you send your workshop choices to Petro please indicate if you wish to attend the code sprint. She will pass your name to the code sprint coordinator (Tim Sutton), or you can add it yourself to FOSS4G2008_CodeSprint.

They will run in parallel to presentation tracks and are 1h30 long. They are listed here but their abstracts and scheduling will be available on the main conference website soon: http://www.foss4g2008.org
