Eighth Annual Beowulf Bash

We are putting together our annual Beowulf Bash.  It will take place at
its traditional place and time: during the week of the IEEE SC Conference.  

We are trying to keep a casual event with broad sponsorship.
The attraction is the other attendees, rather than high-end food or
entertainment.  Read that as "beer, snacks, and people you always wanted
to talk to."

If you or your company would like to help sponsor the event,
please contact Suzie Spangler, suzie at scyld com or 410-990-9993.
  - get their name up in lights (errrmm, or maybe just vinyl signs)
  - are part of the brief greeting in the middle of the party.
  - have the opportunity for technical, hands-on demos at the bash
  - have their logos on the beowulf.org through the end of SC06, and on
    the 2006 yearbook page after the event.

Past Parties and Sponsors.
