Announcing Colorado Software Summit 2005
October 23 – 28, 2005

Mark your calendar now for the week of October 23 – 28, 2005, and plan to join us at Keystone Resort, Colorado, for next year's conference. We will post a Call for Papers in late January or early February, and we will begin to post more detailed information about the 2005 conference agenda in the following months.

Thank You for a Great 2004 Conference!

It is a pleasure to bring this conference directly to people and to see their immediate reaction to it. Producing this conference has enabled us to make literally hundreds of good friends from around the world, and we made many new friends this year from among the great group of attendees. Thank you for coming, and we hope you had a wonderful time, that you learned far more here than you expected (even if you came with very high expectations), and that we will see you again soon!

We also want to thank the excellent group of speakers for this year's conference. This is a labor of love for them, to prepare two presentations absolutely chock-full of hard-won information, and then to present each of those presentations three times during the week. No one would sign up for such a difficult task except for the love of doing it, and we are extremely fortunate to be able to work with speakers who possess such high skills and who are eager to share their knowledge with you.

Colorado Software Summit 2004 CD-ROMs Have Been Mailed

All of the Colorado Software Summit 2004 Proceedings CD-ROMs have been mailed to conference attendees, as of the week ending November 12, 2004. If you have not received your CD-ROM within a reasonable amount of time, please contact us, and include your postal address in case we have an incorrect address for you.

Agenda for Colorado Software Summit 2004

We have posted the full agenda of speakers and their topics for Colorado Software Summit 2004. Follow either of these links to the agenda sorted by speaker name or the agenda sorted by topic title. We do not anticipate any further changes to the speakers or topics on this agenda, but nevertheless, please check our "What's New" page from time to time for unanticipated changes.

Detailed Daily Schedule for Colorado Software Summit 2004

We have posted a complete schedule for the conference week, with an overview, a detailed daily schedule for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, a schedule cross reference sorted by speaker name, and a description of the Q&A sessions.

Detailed Daily Schedule in PDF Format

We have also posted three PDF files that present the schedule in different formats. You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these files. The first PDF file is a daily schedule sorted by day and time, and it includes room assignments for each time slot. The second is a daily schedule sorted by speaker name, also with room assignments. The third is a "week at a glance" schedule worksheet that presents the schedule in a condensed format that is particularly useful for planning your personal schedule for the week at the conference.

Presentations from the 2003 Conference

We are making the presentations from CSS 2003 available for viewing here. To make it easier to find specific presentations that you wish to see, we have arranged them as presentations sorted by speaker name and as presentations sorted by topic title. We hope you'll take the time to look at these presentations carefully, so that you can see for yourself the quality and depth of the information available at Colorado Software Summit.

Would You Like a Brochure?

If you would like a brochure for Colorado Software Summit 2005, please contact us with your postal address and we will place you on our mailing list. These brochures are usually mailed in July. You can also contact us by phone, fax, and mail. The information that is on this Web site is always more complete and more up-to-date than in brochures, but the people who sign your pay checks often insist on seeing a printed brochure.
