How to Register
To register for the above event, please follow this link (click here). This will take you to the the ISUG website where the automated registration system will accept either ISUG members or non-members. Last years Canadian Technical Summit forced everyone who was registering to become a basic member (which is still free by the way). In the upgraded registration system, you now have a choice.
BTW: Everyone is welcome ... so I hope to see attendees again from Toronto, Montreal and northern New York state!
The OSUG event will be held in the double-board room located in Constitution Square at 350 Albert Street, Ottawa, Ontario. The lecture rooms are located on the center section of the second floor level. For more information on Constitution Square, please click here!
Things to do
If you are coming from outside the National Capital region - Ottawa’s Christmas Lights Across Canada event runs for five weeks from Dec. 2 to Jan. 7, with more than 300,000 lights adding sparkle to the Capital Region.
