Dear Manolo, Juan,

many thanks for your (late ;-)) replies to the conference committee, I 
hope it is right in time before the committee members fix their votes 

I put your answers into the WIKI in the manner I thought it fits best 
to our questions:

What I am missing is some basic information, that already Steven 
requested for:

- Who else is on your local organizing committee (LOC)?
- What is your proposed venue? (include access to Internet, room sizes, 
maximum attendees)
- What are your provisional dates for the conference?
   (I could estimate sometime in September, as you lined out the 
september temperatures, but is it possible to be more precise here?)
- Early thoughts on prices of conference attendance? (indicative 
- What is the price range and general location of your proposed 
accommodations?  (hotels)

Maybe you can give some more information on this?

Many thanks, Till
