We are pleased to bring you the 9th Annual Tcl/Tk conference (Tcl'2002), sponsored by ActiveState . This conference is a forum to:

  • bring together Tcl/Tk researchers and practitioners
  • publish and present current work involving Tcl/Tk
  • learn about the latest developments in Tcl/Tk
  • plan for future Tcl/Tk related developments

Conference Location

The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Georgia . This is a classic hotel located right in downtown Vancouver. There is a special conference rate of CAD$139/night (~US$90) single or double occupancy. The rate holds until August 31st, but it is best to reserve early as mid-September is still high-season and rooms are limited. To receive the rate, you must contact the hotel directly (US and Canada toll-free 1-800-663-1111) and mention the "Tcl Conference" or "ActiveState". If you wish to stay extra time before or after the conference, you will still receive the special conference rate.
