As an update, Dominique just confirmed that BrailleNet would be able to 
host the meeting on April 13-14 in Paris, either at the UPMC University, 
or Cité des Sciences. As far as I see none of the speakers of their 
conference is a participant in this Task Force, but Jeanne Spellman is 
there. I leave it to your decision if this poses a better alternative, 
I'm open for both dates and places. :)
