Actually, having limited space is a good news. ;-)
With a bit of mobilisation we can make it a very visible event
inside the European Parlement.
If people need to stack in order to participate,
there is obviously a big interest on this topic.

The most important information is that in order to get
physical access to within the European Parlement, you need
to be identifyed as comming to the conference (security issue).

This mean you have to contact first:
Laurence Van de Walle
lvandewalle at europarl.eu.int
If ever the room is overfull, she will tell you.

A few news over the net:
Even more interesting link on Linux FR
where people organise themself to get from various location in France.

Translation and similar news into your news site or your mailing list are
Various Belgian Linux User Group have been contacted.
Belgian University and Computer Science dep. should start soon.

Poster are available from Laurence Van de Walle if you have a public place
with a lot of potential interested people (University, User Group, ...).
