We are still 1 1/2 month into XDC 2012 so it's time to give
a status update and beat the drums some more:
- Registration Reminder:
So far we have 24 registered participants: there's plenty of
room for more - so if you haven't done so: register!
If you are in need for travel sponsorship please consider
contacting the X.Org Foundation Board of Directors:
send email board at foundation.x.org.
- Presentation Reminder:
So far we don't have all too many proposals for presentations.
Matt Dew has just announced a more formal CFP if you would
like to submit a conference paper:
However you can still register as described on the conference
page if you prefer a more informal process.
I expect that Matt will send out a clarification on this
If at doubt feel free to contact me.
- Hotel Reservation Reminder:
We've got a number of rooms allocated for the conference
which you will get for EUR 68/night for a single room
(breakfast and free wifi included) at the
Azimut Hotel (http://www.azimuthotels.com)

This deal will expire on April 18th, so please make your
reservation! There are still a number of rooms available -
first come first serve.
For the reservation you need to state the reservation
The hotel has informed me that you should either place your
reservation by phone or by email if you want to take advantage
of this special deal.
Please *don't* use the online reservation tool.
- Beer Hiking thru the Franconian Countryside:
We will do a beer hiking trip thru the Frankonian Countryside
on Saturday after the conference:
on this trip we will walk from one beer garden of a micro-brewery
to the next. Please let me know if you would like to participate
so that I get a rough estimate on the number of people who would
like to join.
- Contact Information Update:
If you have any further inquiries please feel free to email me
at egbert.eich _at_ gmail.com (Please note I've updated the email
address at which you can reach me and replaced it by one that
is not hampered by broken spam filters.) So if you have tried to
contact me in the past and weren't able to, please resend!
You may also contact me at freenode: my nick is 'egbert'.
I'm always present - though not always physical. I will respond
sometimes with a delay.
So see you all in Nuernberg!
