Over the last week I heard several voices that the date is  
inconvenient especially for people in the UK because it's the Easter  
week where many are on vacation, for example Bruce Lawsom who *lives*  
in Birmingham. For me it doesn't seem to make too much sense to hold  
the meeting in the UK at a time when Brits are on vacation?

I understand that there haven't been too many offers of sponsoring  
another venue in Europe and that we need something not too late,  
preferably in the week of April 13-14? There's a large accessibility  
conference in Paris on the 12th, can we find a venue there? I guess I  
could ask the organizers. Otherwise I could try to find a place in  
Frankfurt; we have a very decent international airport, too. ;-) Are  
there any special requirements for the venue, like wheelchair  
accessibility?

Cheers,
Martin
