A summary of the seminars with some links to slides and additional information.

What is the Nordic University Computer Club Conference?

Nordic University Computer Club Conference, or NUCCC for short, is an annual gathering of active people in the various University Computer Clubs in the nordic countries. A brief history of previous NUCCC's is available at the NUCC(C) homepage.

NUCCC is meant to be a way for people of the various computer clubs to meet in real life, learn from each other, inspire new projects, discuss obscure topics (vi vs. emacs, GNU vs. BSD licence, for example) and to simply have fun! This is THE conference for people active in computer clubs, so we try to make the most of it :-)

What is Academic Computer Club?

Academic Computer Club, or ACC for short, is the computer club at Umeå University, Sweden. At the NUCC meeting last year, ACC was elected to host the 2002 edition of the conference.
