Suggestion to host RIF F2F13, April 15-17 in Madrid, Spain.

Suggestion to host RIF F2F13,  April 15-17 in Madrid, Spain:

I have talked with my former colleagues at Univ. Rey Juan Carlos in
Mostoles, Madrid about the possiblity to host the next f2f meeting in
Madrid short before WWW2009, i.e. April 15-17. (weekend is 
difficult/hardly possible there)

Campus Mostoles:,+28933+Mostoles,+Spain&ie=UTF8&om=1&z=18&ll=40.335827,-3.878238&spn=0.001807,0.005322&t=h&iwloc=addr

reachable from Madrid, station "principe pio" in approximately 30min
by bus or metro.

Here is what I found out. Unless we find an additional sponsor, the
following infrastructure could be provided:

- meeting room (with tables U-shape) for 20 persons
- optional second meeting room for break-out sessions
- wireless internet
- projector

As for lunches and coffee breaks, we could, at moderate prices go to
the university restaurant and/or cafeteria. We are still trying to find
out about the possiblity to have a speaker phone in the meeting room
which at the moment I cannot guarantee, so we'd maybe need to
resort to e.g. skype if someone needs to dial in. THere is a dedicated 
Video conference room, which has all the infrastructure, but it's likely 
not gonna be free all the time:
here an approximate plan of bokings for that room...

I thank Prof. Ossowski from URJC for his efforts and the kind offer and 
help in finding out the details.
