We're pleased to announce that (second RacketCon) will take place on
October 13, 2012, at Northeastern University in Boston.  This year,
RacketCon will feature 3 2-hour tutorial sessions, as well as a series
of short talks about development in and of Racket over the last year.

Potential tutorial sessions include:

    Building a new domain-specific language using syntactic extension
    Using contracts in application development

    Parallelizing Racket applications with futures and places

Potential talks include:

    futures and visualization

On Sunday after RacketCon, we plan to hold a hackathon to work as a
group on various Racket projects such as documentation improvements
and FFI bindings.  This will be organized by Asumu Takikawa.
