ConCom will support any event that fits the criteria specified in their 
support documents see

If you want to make an event happen then just put your proposal to ConCom.

Anything that doesn't fit the criteria for support is usually either:

a) too large for ConCom to support (e.g. BerlinBuzzwords)


b) too small to need support (e.g. a few people meeting for a beer)
