      In accordance with its annual tradition, the Israeli Free and
      Open Source Software community will hold the August Penguin conference
      ( http://august.penguin.org.il/ ) under the auspices of the Hamakor
      non-profit organisation ( http://www.hamakor.org.il/ ).

      This year the conference will take place on Friday, 6 August 2010,
      starting at 08:30 in the morning, in the Avner building of the
      Weizmann Institute in Rehovoth, Israel. Entrance to the conference costs
      50 New Israeli Sheqels (ILS), while members and friends of
      Hamakor and the Israeli Internet Society (ISOC) are not required to pay.
      (Note that youth under the age of 18, soldiers, and students can opt
      to join Hamakor as friends or members for the entrance fee.)

      So what is going to take place in the conference?

        This is the Ebner building (though it's spelt the same in Hebrew - "אבנר").

        There is no free entry for members of ISOC this year. Hamakor friends and
        members still get a free entry.
