MCPC 2009 – Latest News – Website Running Again

When you organize a huge conference, there are many small problems and things to fix. The organizing committee of the MCPC 2009 conference can tell you much about it …

Yesterday, a larger problem occurred: today. It seems that there is a main internet cable cut somewhere in the city of Helsinki (outside the university). This has stopped access to the conference website.

UPDATE: The conference server is running again as usual … so please check back to see the final program.
