Dear all,

REGISTRATION for the Internet Research 9.0 conference, IT University of
Copenhagen, October 16th - 18th 2008, Copenhagen, Denmark is now open for
both presenters and all interested academics!

As the conference chair, Im happy to finally announce that you can now all
register for the Internet Research 9.0 conference (also known as the annual
conference of AoIR) on the conference website! -  I would like to apologise
for the delay in the opening of the registration: one reason being that
balancing the dropping rate of the dollar with the high prices of catering
in Denmark hasn't been an easy exercise - but we have now found some good
solutions :).
