The 2005 Daylight European User Group Meeting will be held October 5-7 in Cambridge, England.

Our two-day format includes both presentations from Daylight staff and Daylight users. Users will present talks on the work they are doing utilizing Daylight software. These presentations offer the opportunity to share and learn on a peer-to-peer level with other Daylight users. Daylight staff will present on new developments and directions for Daylight. All individuals interested in Daylight, regardless of their level of experience or familiarity with our software, are invited to attend.

In addition, Daylight staff will be offering an informal training session on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 4, 2005. The training will be held at the Cambridge Garden Moat House.

Euro-MUG will take place at the Cambridge Garden House - Moat House. The hotel has a limited number of rooms available for meeting attendees at the rate of £135. Reservations must be made directly with the hotel prior to September 4. A few lower priced rooms may also be available by reserving through the Moat House Hotel's online reservation system.
