We don't know if we should provide computers from some workshops or just
the room and each one brings his own computer. Can we decide right now
that there are no computers available or it is better to have computers
for people travelling without laptops? What do you think?

We will try to use the available computer labs from the university, but
we don't know yet if they will charge us for that. There are not much
computer labs at the university any more, because students prefers to
bring their own computers. Basically we added this item for computer
rentals if we need an extra room with computers, but we hope that will
not be necessary.

You give me a very good idea (I need feedback from my co-chairs Maria
and Pedro, to see if they agree, and from Joana Simões - our marketing
chair). We can create a design logo contest to offer free entrance for
the winner. It will help to spread the word and to let someone come
without paying the fee.

Thanks Jeff!
