     Ideally, we should host this in a University,

That would be a good idea, but guess there must be some event running along

as the hotel that we

Nop, have no visa :D

        * Prague, has a SUSE/Novell office, but there are few direct

would be nice

would be excelent

well some city with no beach and university..... Mexico City?

     Which probably means "Do your conference in Boston, in mid
> February" to guarantee attendance ;-).

No way :P
