I guess they have the last word, unless one of the other facilities can
provide the prefered dates.

People from Europe are not going to be willing to cross the Atlantic
just for a week.

As last year I dissapeared from the surface of earth (Gunnar is not the
only one to apologize here, count me in), and CFP was one of my duties,
I would like to to it right this time and volunteer for that.  

If email collection of CFP has to be done, I volunteer to merge all the
emails received into COMAS once it is up and running in a definite

And of course, I volunteer for the complete set of tasks that CFP
handling may involve, provided you guys can still trust me with it,
after what happened.

I somehow find mailing lists communication easier than irc, with all
that asyncromous scrolling text all over the place, so here is my
suggestion for the COMAS/website issue:

  - Setup COMAS in the server imentioned by Gunnar at his uni (all the
    advantages of local $UID=0 access apply).
  - Setup a maybe-wiki-alike informative webpage using the CMS of choice
     * The link in the "maybe-wiki-alike informative webpage" that reads
       _.*Register/My account*._ points to COMAS. 
     * The rest of the webpage is just the usual info, that can be
       edited, updated, and fixed by a team of web editors to keep it
       accurate and up2date. Why should people be logged in to _view_
       this info? It would all be much simpler if they did not need to.

Just my 0.2 €!
