Next update. I'm going to fix this version up in the schedule.
Nicolas: I'll also redo the conference folder with this version. Will
be ready in an hour. If it is not yet copied this would be the version

Current situation is (state: yesterday evening).
* Edward Cherlin can't come
I asked him to rethink this but it is probably too late. I guess we
asked to loudly for self funding :-( .
This does not help with the schedule because he has been planned as
part of a panel. Also Christof offered to read a paper from him
which is good.
Considered cancelled - at least in person.
* Gundolf Freyermuth is at stake
He wrote me a private mail where he said he has problems with coming
to the conference.
I strongly asked him to reconsider. He is in Germany and could fly
to the conference and back at the same day so it might work out for
him. I asked him to send a mail to [rox] and [pox] if he really does
not come but there was none. So I still think he tries to come.
No news here so I still think he comes.
* S Bipin Agravat can't come
This more or less failed because of the Schengen wall :-( .
This opens up Saturday 17-19, Track B
StefanMz: Can you remove his/her entry? I'll move it to an absurd
place so it does not get in the way. Hah - this works :-) . So in
practice this is away to remove a contribution from the schedule.

But we cannot fill this slot directly with the workshop "Free Software
from an Economic Perspective" (in German).
Its several people and they need to part to another event. So they want to
speak friday at 12:00
This is now going to happen. I'll switch the tracks with ChristianW.
I suggest the minimum possible change would be to kindly ask Stephan
Eissler to do his speech at 15:00 in the afternoon.
That would leaave the overall structure intact and we still have 2 German
and 1 English track parallel in each period.
Thanks for thinking about this.
Since S Bipin Agravat is now clear not to come I think it is easier to
move Raoul to his slot and move the sponsored slot you mentioned to
Raoul's slot. Raoul will be there all the time so I think he won't
I'm stupid. Franz is right when he says that moving Raoul away from
Friday 12-14 results in an "English gap". ChristianW can't be moved
because he leaves on Friday IIRC. So I *hope* it is possible to move
StephanE to SBipinA's place. I'll ask him by PM. I'll also switch the
I'll enter this solution in the schedule. If it not ok with StephanE
than Raoul will be moved.

PS: Sorry for being short. I'm in a hurry.
