> Dear all,
> In the LGM-organisers meeting that we held on the last day of LGM in

> In other words, we decided to consider four proposals for LGM 2014 and
> established a relay person for each of these options (Montreal: Louis
> Desjardins, Medellin: Maria Leandro, Leipzig: Mario Behling, Buenos Aires:

> Promoters of each venue have the possibility to revise and/or clarify

> meeting. Only if these people can not come to a clear consensus, the debate
> will be opened up to the larger community.
> We also established that the deadline for proposing a venue for LGM 2015
> should be minimum 3 months before LGM 2014 so that the decision can be made
> beforehand and announced at the meeting.
> Let's keep with this procedure? It's probably not perfect but to me it

We all agreed on that and it rejoins our guidelines.

We’ll put things clear on the website and the call for 2015 will be made on
time as well.
