how it might work.

Debian to be at the Society for Neuroscience meeting

The Debian project is pleased to announce its presence at the Society for
Neuroscience meeting (SfN2010) that will take place November 13-17 in San
Diego, USA [1]. Debian will present the upcoming release Debian 6.0
"Squeeze" and demonstrate its utility as a robust and versatile research
environment for neuroscience. Booth visitors will have the opportunity to
meet with developers of neuroscience research software, and to get
information on available software and recommendations for deployment
strategies in research laboratories. Members of the NeuroDebian [2] team
will be available to discuss the advantages of integrating research
software into the Debian operating system.

If you are going to SfN2010, come talk to us at booth #3815 [3].
