+1. I will be happy to help Greek friends in organizing the meeting. Anyway
I'm wondering if sooner or later is possible to organize a Mediterranean

> One final note for the European participation on this list: I suggest that

> also integrating in it the Central-Eastern Europe event) starting from
> 2014. I volunteer Greece to host the first such event (OK, given that
> things in Greece will not turn out too bad :)).
> If there is an initial agreement we can organize things a bit more.
> Thanks for the consideration of both proposals,
