Well, in fact the original plan was to have all the papers or other
written conference documentation before the conference so I don't need
to ask for it after the conference. Unfortunately after the conference
some speakers tend to not deliver anything so requesting it before the
conference is always a good idea.
However, at the moment it simply makes no sense to require papers from
you. I'm not able to process them anyway.
I hope I can trust all of you that you will provide written
documentation during or after the conference.
some of you already did. Thanks for this.
For the others: Please do soon.
The preferred option is to have real papers (not too long but
generally at your option) but slides are also acceptable.
As for the format: I probably will convert things to a simple ASCII
based format anyway so the more ASCII your format is the better:
I changed my mind on this after seeing some of the slides on the
conference which were really works of art :-) . I just will put the
material on the website as I get it. That is: If it comes in or I can
transform it to PDF or a free format.
I'll also post the documentation to the main Oekonux discussion list
[ox-en] step by step. See
for more information on this mailing list and an extensive archive.
Indeed today [ox-en] is the core list of Oekonux consisting of ~120
participants at the moment. It is suited very well to continue the
discussion which started on the conference. The list traffic normally
is moderate (1 mail per day as a long term average) and as the Oekonux
maintainer I keep an eye on the list that it runs smoothly. I.e.: I
handle troll problems and off-topicness. Lately I had little time for
this but I'm looking forward to fully engage in [ox-en] again.
Some of you are already subscribed there and some subscribed shortly.
I'd appreciate if others could do as well. Also Franz already started
some gathering of post-conference activities. See
and the following, still short thread.
