Hi everyone.

I am aware that there is an IGM in April in Germany but do not have any further news/information - how to book a place, offer talks, where exactly the venue is, how to book accommodation etc.

Can anyone please help with information or a web link for the meeting. I was expecting something to appear on ORG or an email to be sent to the IGM list, nothing so far

Many thanks for any help

Hi Chris,

information has been minimal so far indeed, especially for anyone who is not on Facebook (like yourself).
I think the best thing to do is to write an email to Ronald Klein.

All I know is that the meeting will be held at the Heide Spa Hotel in Bad Düben ( from 14-17 April.
Participants so far include Lars Jonsson, Andreas Buchheim, Hans Larsson, Risto Juvaste, many of the Dutch boys, and others.
