I agree with Dirk (and said so before [1]) that we definitely need a
local conference if we want to reach out to end-users. Small firms,
local and regional governmentsare not very likely to join a conference
in a different country. And many of them have attended the previous
two events we had in Ghent and Brussels. In both cases attendance
exceeded the expectations, and inscriptions for the conference in
Brussels had to be closed.

This does not exclude cooperating with the dutch/french language chapters.
