Hi to all,

It's glad to see that there is interest to organize the CEE meeting, but I
think we need to define some core points. Before to determine who will be
member of the team, it's better to have the initial date for the
conference. Another point is to know who will be represented at the
conference and what is the budget for it. But let's slow down, since Mile
told us that he is preparing it and will send when ready.

For me it's a no problem to be part of the team for the conference and do
various tasks.
