Sure, we'll do both.  I gathered a number of descriptions below (the O'Reilly
one is too soon).  But one thing we'll have to consider about these
non-scientific conferences, is that they cater to businesses that rent exhibit
space.  The bioinformatics conferences will have typical, scientific
poster-sessions, but I'm not so sure about the Linux conferences; we'll have to
look into it further.

* FREENIX is a special track within the USENIX Annual Technical Conference.
USENIX encourages the exchange of information and technologies between the
commercial UNIX products and the free software world as well as among the
various free operating system alternatives. FREENIX is the showcase for the
latest developments and interesting applications in freely redistributable
software. The FREENIX forum includes Apache, FreeBSD, GNOME, GNU, Linux, NetBSD,
OpenBSD, Samba, and more. The FREENIX track attempts to cover the full range of
software which is freely redistributable in source code form and provides
pointers to where the code can be found on the Internet. June 18, 23, 2000, San
