We are please to officially announce that MWLUG 2016 will be held on August 17-19, 2016 at the Four Seasons in Austin Texas. We have secured a special rate for this event. With all the new innovations that IBM and IBM Business Partners are creating with our favorite technologies, we are "Defining the Art of Collaboration" which is our theme for MWLUG 2016. We are expecting an even greater turnout this year at MWLUG 2016. We are planning many activities and new formats to make this a special event. For attendees that are interesting in coming earlier, we are also working on a special event on Tuesday, August 16, 2016. We will need to determine if there is enough interest before we book this event. More information will be coming soon. Sponsorship for MWLUG 2016, will be starting very soon with presentation abstract submission in April. We look forward to seeing everyone in Austin. And yes, we are cooking up a few surprises.
