This is the update for Munich. Unfortunately, it is not clear yet
whether anybody from the Munich team will be able to attend, as Andreas
Barth is sick, Jan-Marek Glogowski is probably offline at the time and I
am travelling myself.
We had another on-location appointment at the University for Applied
Science in Munich. We were very impressed by the venue (it is a pretty
new building, and we could use as much of it as we want), the staff (the
dean showed us along and was very forthcoming and helpful) and the
price (we would get it for free, save for additional security beyond
The dean has agreed to sign a "letter of intent", we are currently in
the process of drafting it. Andreas Barth already got some advice on
this on IRC, but we appreciate any further input on this.
As for the other venue options, we are still negotiating with the two
universities (LMU and TUM) as backup options.
Our next steps will be further local-team building and looking into
accomodation again, as well as finalizing the bid wiki page.
