+
+    <p>Egypt, Alexandria.</p>
+
+    <p>Bibliotheca Alexandrina is located on a superb site on the historic
+    eastern harbor of Alexandria, almost exactly where the old library and
+    the royal palace of the Ptolemies once stood, the complex comprises three
+    main elements: the pre-existing conference center, the planetarium and
+    the new building.</p>
+
+    <p>Bibliotheca Alexandrina is a center of excellence that has be hosted
+    several international events in different fields and Wikimania 2009 was
+    one of the latest related events inside its well equipped Conference
+    Center.</p>
+
+    <h3>Special visa or entry requirements (e.g. vaccinations)</h3>
+
+    <p>Most visitors are not required to have a visa prior to coming to
+    Egypt, as it can be obtained at the country's ports of entry. The
+    citizens of the following countries are required to be in possession of a
+    pre-arrival visa:</p>
+
+    <p>Afghanistan, Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh,
+    Bosnia-Herzegovina, China, Croatia, Georgia, Hong Kong(BN(O) only),
+    India, Indonesia, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz, Lebanon,
+    Macedonia, Malaysia, Moldova, Montenegro, Morocco, Pakistan, Palestine,
+    The Philippines, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Sri-Lanka, Tajikistan,
+    Thailand, and Tunisia.</p>
+
+    <p>However, for the best information concerning visas, we recommend you
+    to contact the Egyptian embassy or consulate in your country. Check the
+    list of Egyptian embassies in various countries. A Visa would normally
+    cost between $15 and $90 USD, depending on the applicant's nationality
+    (about $20 for US citizen). Those in possession of a residence permit in
+    Egypt are not required to obtain an entry visa if they leave the country
+    and return to it within the validity of their residence permit or within
+    six months, whichever period is less. For Full Information: <a href=

+    <p><strong>Obtaining a visa</strong><br />
+    If you require a visa to visit Hungary, please visit the following page:
+    <a href=
+    "http://www.traveldocs.com/hu/vr.htm">http://www.traveldocs.com/hu/vr.htm</a>.</p>
+
+    <p>If you are still unsure whether you require a visa, please check the
+    website of the <a href="http://www.kulugyminiszterium.hu/">Hungarian
+    Ministry of Foreign Affairs</a>.</p>
+
+    <p><strong>N.B. No vaccinations are required to enter
+    Hungary.</strong></p>
+
+    <h3>Conference venue(s) (e.g. university campus, municipal
+    buildings)</h3>
+
+    <p>The site of the conference is the Eotvos Lorand University (ELTE),
+    which has 3,500 students in its IT faculty at the “<a href=
+    "http://www.infopark-budapest.hu/">Innovation and Technology Park</a>” of
+    Budapest (which employs 7,500 people in the IT, telecoms and software
+    industries).</p>
+
+    <p>As the conference centre building offers a combination of smaller and
+    larger rooms for both workshops and larger sessions, and has hosted
+    several global events in recent years (of the size of OOoCon and above),
+    it would facilitate more speeches, workshops, presentations and
+    roundtable discussions than at previous OpenOffice.org conferences.</p>
+
+    <h3>Conference facilities (e.g. WiFi, video streaming/recording)</h3>
+
+    <p>The building is equipped with advanced facilities such as a
+    <strong>high-tech presentation hall</strong> capable of holding 600
+    people, along with several different size <strong>auditorium with
+    PCs</strong> and a <strong>WIFI network</strong> all in the same
+    building. Accommodation and Budapest's city center are also easily
+    accessible from the event site with public transport.</p>
+
+    <p>Our experiences proved that the infrastructure (<strong>high-quality
+    sound system</strong>, conference hall, Wifi, special IT rooms with PCs)
+    makes the venue an ideal setting for this kind of conference.</p>
+
+    <p>An attractive web page will be built to ensure delivery of up-to-date
+    information to guests as well as detailed materials for the press. We
+    will <strong>broadcast the presentations of the keynote speakers in
+    realtime</strong> on the dedicated website. To <strong>ease social
+    networking</strong> we will publish a personal page with a photo and
+    short description of each speaker and registered member that choose this
+    option.</p>
+
+    <p>We would like to allow numerous creatives, technologists, scientists
+    and programmers the chance to share their interesting ideas at the
+    conference. For that reason, one of the days of this conference will be
+    set up as a BarCamp, at which a huge number of spokespeople can propose a
+    presentation and attendees will themselves decide on which conference
+    topics and activities will take place on that day. Every registered guest
+    can vote online on the official web page of the conference.</p>
+
+    <h3>Accommodation (especially any low cost hostels etc)</h3>
+
+    <p>September is the favourite period of tourists for city breaks, so the
+    organizers are ready to make block reservations for the participants. The
+    organizers will also give support (tel., email) to help you to make the
+    reservation in the recommended accommodation. All hotels recommended are
+    standard European quality and price.</p>
+
+    <h3>External transport links (nearest airport(s))</h3>
+
+    <p>Hungary is located in the centre of Europe, therefore all the major
+    worldwide airlines (such as British Airways, Lufthansa, Air France,
+    Alitalia, SAS, Aeroflot, etc) fly to Ferihegy Airport. The Hungarian
+    national airline – MALEV also offers daily connections to all the
+    European capitals.</p>
+
+    <p>An average return flight ticket from any European country to Budapest
+    may cost between EUR 150 and EUR 450, although flying by low-cost
+    airlines can make big savings.</p>

+    <h2>Section 2 – Proposal</h2>
+
+    <p>In 400 words or less, answer this question:</p>
+
+    <div class="quotation">
+      <p>Why should the Community award OOoCon 2009/2010 to your team?</p>
+    </div>
+
+    <p>We are proud to propose Budapest as a location for the 2009
+    OpenOffice.org Conference.</p>
+
+    <p>Hungary has a <strong>large and enthusiastic community of
+    OpenOffice.org localizers and developers</strong> who have managed
+    numerous OpenOffice.org related developments: extensions (OxygenOffice,
+    EuroOffice), quality assurance of OpenOffice.org code, the Hungarian
+    spell check library (HunSpell) and several value-added localized
+    OpenOffice.org code-based products (StarOffice, EuroOffice). A consortium
+    of local companies and universities won a EUR 2.1 million tender in 2008.
+    The aim of this three-year project is to develop a software quality
+    assurance service-package for open document format applications and
+    thereby increase the level of inter-interoperability of OpenOffice.org.
+    This will significantly strengthen its position on the worldwide
+    corporate market.</p>
+
+    <p>The OOoCon 2009 event in Budapest is already attracting <strong>a
+    large number of potential supporters and sponsors</strong>, including the
+    government and universities, as well as multinational and local vendors,
+    as our preliminary negotiations with them have clearly demonstrated.</p>
+
+    <p>All the recommended <strong>accommodation offers easy access to the
+    location of the conference</strong> (InfoPark) and also to the city
+    center. We will also provide a <strong>three-day ticket for all means of
+    public transport in Budapest to all registered guests</strong>.</p>
+
+    <p>To avoid any problems we will ensure a printed <strong>information
+    package</strong> (city map, emergency card, conference map, schedule,
+    important telephone numbers, recommended bars and restaurants, etc) and
+    will send the same files by email to all our registered guests. We also
+    guarantee a <strong>contact person, who will be on hand</strong> in the
+    event of any problems, from co-ordination to visa issues.</p>
+
+    <p>The organizers of OOoCon 2009 are offering a <strong>sponsorship
+    program for long-term OpenOffice.org contributors</strong> - who will all
+    be offered a hotel room free of charge.</p>
+
+    <p>We offer the following entertaining facilities for our guests free of
+    charge:</p>
+
+    <ul>
+      <li>
+        <p><strong>Banquet in the Salon of</strong> <a href=
+        "http://www.spasbudapest.com/furdo.php?idx=14"><strong>Bath
+        Szechenyi</strong></a><br />
+        Aperitif and wine tasting, Experience the celebrated Szechenyi
+        Bath</p>
+      </li>
+
+      <li>
+        <p><strong>Excursion to the historic royal city of</strong> <a href=
+        "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visegr%C3%A1d"><strong>Visegrad</strong></a><br />
+
+        Visit to the famous fortress of King Mathias, Dinner at a medieval

+
+    <p>Details of the proposals received will be posted shortly.</p>
+
+    <h2>Call for Location</h2>
+
+    <p>The OpenOffice.org Community is now accepting proposals for hosting
+    its next annual international conference, OOoCon 2009. Since the first
+    conference in 2003, OOoCon has been held in Germany, Slovenia, France,
+    Spain, and China - could your local OpenOffice.org community rise to the
+    challenge in 2009?</p>
+
+    <p>Hosting OOoCon is challenging, rewarding, exhilarating, exhausting ...
+    and can provide a huge publicity boost for OpenOffice.org in your
+    country. There is no fixed date for OOoCon, although past conferences
+    have been held in the autumn.</p>
+
+    <h2>Submitting a proposal</h2>
+
+    <p>Proposals should be submitted before midnight UTC on February 1st 2009
+    and must follow the following guidelines:</p>
+
+    <h3>Section 1 – Mandatory Information</h3>
+
+    <p>Proposed Date(s):<br />
+    Location (country, city):<br />
+    Special visa or entry requirements (e.g. vaccinations):<br />
+    Conference venue(s) (e.g. university campus, municipal buildings):<br />
+    Conference facilities (e.g. WiFi, video streaming/recording):<br />
+    Accommodation (especially any low cost hostels etc):<br />
+    External transport links (nearest airport(s)):<br />
+    Internal transport links (within city):<br />
+    Team Lead (main contact person):<br />
+    Team Members (all members should be willing and able to commit at least 3
+    hours per day to planning the conference during the last two weeks before
+    OOoCon 2009):<br />
+    Local events that are taking place in parallel (or immediately
+    before/after):</p>
+
+    <h3>Section 2 – Your proposal</h3>
+
+    <p>In 400 words or less, answer this question:<br />
+    <strong>Why should the Community award OOoCon 2009 to your
+    team?</strong></p>
+
+    <p><em>Note:</em> There have also been recommendations that we should
+    move to a two year cycle, so this year we would also award OOoCon 2010.
+    The team running 2010 would be expected to 'shadow' the 2009 team, to
+    help them with the 2009 event, and prepare better for their own OOoCon
+    the following year.</p>
+
+    <p>Please indicate in your proposal if you would be happy to be
+    considered for OOoCon 2010 if your bid for 2009 is unsuccessful.</p>
+
+    <h2>Submitting a Proposal</h2>
+
+    <p>Proposals should be sent to the <a href=
+    "mailto:ooocon2009@openoffice.org">ooocon2009 (at)
+    openoffice.org</a>.</p>
+
+    <p>The deadline for submissions is <strong>midnight UTC on February 1st
+    2009</strong>.</p>
+
+    <p>Shortly after that date we will publish the applications and start the
+    selection process, during which Community members will be invited to make
+    their preferences known through a community consultation process.</p>
+
+    <p>Information about previous OpenOffice.org Conferences can be found at
+    <a href="http://marketing.openoffice.org/conference/">the OOoCon
+    website</a>. The proposals submitted for OOoCon2008 are available
+    <a href="http://marketing.openoffice.org/ooocon2008/cfl/">here</a>.</p>
+
+    <p>Thank you and good luck with your proposals!</p>

+Subject: OOoCon 2009 - Reykjavik, Iceland
+From: =?ISO-8859-1?Q?=DE=F3rir_Tryggvason?= <thorirt@huxandi.net>
+To: ooocon2009@openoffice.org
+
+Hi there!
+I would like to propose that you select Iceland as your next destination for
+the OOoCon 2009.
+
+Proposed Date(s): 16th-18th of September 2009
+Location (country, city): Iceland, Reykjavik
+
+Special visa or entry requirements (e.g. vaccinations): None for
+Europeans and US citizens. Others depend.
+
+Conference venue(s) (e.g. university campus, municipal buildings): In
+Reykjavik there are two university campuses. The conference will most
+likely be held at one of those university campuses. If necessary other
+conference venues are available.
+
+Conference facilities (e.g. WiFi, video streaming/recording): All
+necessary equipment (e.g. video/streaming capabilities), free wifi on
+campus, cafe's, hotels, etc.
+
+Accommodation (especially any low cost hostels etc): Hostels, low rate
+hotels and other hotels. New hostel is opening in central Reykjavik in May
+
+External transport links (nearest airport(s)): Keflavik International
+airport (40 km). Frequent transportation to the bus terminal in
+Reykjavik, the youth hostel and other locations via FlyBus available
+for a small fee.
+
+Internal transport links (within city): Buses (public transportation),
+taxis, sightseeing bus (hop on/hop off).
+
+Team Lead (main contact person): Thorir Tryggvason (thorirt@huxandi.net)
+
+Team Members (all members should be willing and able to commit at
+least 3 hours per day to planning the conference during the last two
+weeks before OOoCon 2009): The Organization for Digital Freedom in
+Iceland (FSFI). The organization's goal is to spread knowledge and
+information about digital freedom in Iceland. FSFI holds, for example,
+an annual conference for the Icelandic public to raise awareness in
+digital freedoms. In 2008 Eben Moglen and John Perry Barlow were
+keynote speakers.
+
+Local events that are taking place in parallel (or
+immediatelybefore/after): The team is ready to plan and arrange for
+activities, both low cost and more expensive ones. Activities could
+include a trip to Gullfoss (the real one), mountain trips,
+sightseeing, outdoor spas/swimming pools and more. Reykjavik is full
+of tourist attractions for conference goers who'd like to plan tours
+for themselvers, such as ghost tours, viking shows, museums, pubs, etc.
+
+Iceland is situated in the middle of the Atlantic and is therefore
+easily reachable from both Europe and the USA. With the recent fall of
+the Icelandic currency (ISK) the cost for visitors has fallen sharply
+and the country has become affordable (it used to be expensive for
+tourists). There are all sorts of accommodation available, from cheap
+hostels to high class hotels. A large group of Icelanders offer
+accomodation via CouchSurfing[2]. The time of the year is perfect as
+most tourists have left (no accomodation problems) and Icelanders are
+starting work and school, open to new ideas and opportunities.
+
+The public and private sector, and the general population in Iceland
+have limited awareness of FOSS. Recently there has been an increased
+interest in FOSS. OOoCon would enhance this interest and generate more
+curiosity for FOSS, especially OpenOffice.org. The government of Iceland
+has, for instance, released a policy on Free and Open Source
+Software[1]. The uptake of this policy has been slow but has generated
+some interest in FOSS. Many public and private institutions are looking
+at OpenOffice.org as a viable option but are afraid of testing it. With
+OOoCon, we could give them the push.
+
+Iceland is a country that needs to really have a look at all possible
+ways to save money after the financial crash of 2008. The conference
+would open the eyes of many companies and governmental institutions for
+the possibilities of other software than proprietary software. The
+aforementioned policy was created mostly with cost savings in mind, both
+short term and long term. A nation heavily dependent on one company
+(Microsoft), its office bundle, and old document formats, needs to look
+at other options. Awareness in OpenOffice.org is needed and OOoCon is
+the perfect way to achieve it.
+
+Iceland is simply an awesome location for the OOoCon (think of the photo
+opportunity: GullFoss bloggers at Gullfoss, drinking a beer named Gullfoss).
+
+Iceland is the ideal place for fun and action packed nightlife once the
+conference is over.  There is only a short ride to a fantastic nature
+and scenic experience. If you are lucky, you might catch a glint of
+aurora borealis winding through the sky at night.
+
+OOoCon should enjoy a refreshing location in a country with a history
+and great heritage like Iceland. Vote for Iceland and experience a great
+OOoCon 2009 at the world's northernmost capital.

+Hi there!<br>I would like to propose that you select Iceland as your next destination for the OOoCon 2009.<br><div class="gmail_quote"><div class="Ih2E3d"><br>
+Proposed Date(s): 16th-18th of September 2009 <br>
+</div><div class="Ih2E3d">Location (country, city): Iceland, Reykjavik<br>
+<br>
+Special visa or entry requirements (e.g. vaccinations): None for<br>
+Europeans and US citizens. Others depend.<br>
+<br>
+Conference venue(s) (e.g. university campus, municipal buildings): In<br>
+Reykjavik there are two university campuses. The conference will most<br>
+likely be held at one of those university campuses. If necessary other<br>
+conference venues are available.<br>
+<br>
+Conference facilities (e.g. WiFi, video streaming/recording): All<br>
+</div>necessary equipment (e.g. video/streaming capabilities), free wifi on<br>
+<div class="Ih2E3d">campus, cafe&#39;s, hotels, etc.<br>
+<br>
+Accommodation (especially any low cost hostels etc): Hostels, low rate<br>
+hotels and other hotels. New hostel is opening in central Reykjavik in May<br>
+<br>
+</div><div class="Ih2E3d">External transport links (nearest airport(s)): Keflavik International<br>
+airport (40 km). Frequent transportation to the bus terminal in<br>
+Reykjavik, the youth hostel and other locations via FlyBus available<br>
+for a small fee.<br>
+<br>
+Internal transport links (within city): Buses (public transportation),<br>
+taxis, sightseeing bus (hop on/hop off).<br>
+<br>
+Team Lead (main contact person): Thorir Tryggvason (<a href="mailto:thorirt@huxandi.net">thorirt@huxandi.net</a>)<br>
+<br>
+Team Members (all members should be willing and able to commit at<br>
+least 3 hours per day to planning the conference during the last two<br>
+weeks before OOoCon 2009): The Organization for Digital Freedom in<br>
+Iceland (FSFI). The organization&#39;s goal is to spread knowledge and<br>
+information about digital freedom in Iceland. FSFI holds, for example,<br>
+an annual conference for the Icelandic public to raise awareness in<br>
+digital freedoms. In 2008 Eben Moglen and John Perry Barlow were<br>
+keynote speakers.<br>
+<br>
+Local events that are taking place in parallel (or<br>
+immediatelybefore/after): The team is ready to plan and arrange for<br>
+activities, both low cost and more expensive ones. Activities could<br>
+include a trip to Gullfoss (the real one), mountain trips,<br>
+sightseeing, outdoor spas/swimming pools and more. Reykjavik is full<br>
