As you might know, we're busily preparing the schedule for this year's OKCon,
which is going to be in Berlin on the 30th June and 1st July.
We have had quite some people asking to extend the deadline for submission. So here is
your chance: Submissions will be open until Mai, 9th at midnight.
If you have something interesting but *really* can't make it to this deadline please
contact us at okcon(a)okfn.org - we might make an exception.
If you haven't already seen it you can check out the Call for Participation
I'm also writing to say that we'd really like you (yes: you!) to come!
