I was wondering whether one of our European group members are in
position to offer a tutorial for this conference.

I am not fully familiar with the details of this event (maybe some of
you may know more!). If it is the European Counterpart of the Semantic
Technology Conference (the one held in the Silicon Valley every year),
then it may be important for us to be around.

For family reasons it would be a bit complicated for me to go there in
that time range. And we should try to build up a 'speaker pool' at least
on both sides of the pond who could represent SWEO in general. Any taker?
