Greetings Everyone.

This a friendly reminder that the deadline for the abstracts pertaining to
SFD is tonight. We are running really low on presentations right now (only
2 abstracts for SFD) and we need presentations to make that event happen.

If anyone feels up to giving some time and energy for SFD, you have until
today, 11:59 PM. Based on the number of people submitting abstracts, we
will have an idea of how we will organize this event.

If we don't have more, maybe we will consider focusing on the GIS-Day
instead. That will need to be a collective decision.
