Call for Papers - to be distributed via pp-leaders: To be done by Thomas when Organizing Committee is added to the webpage.

8 Financial Situation

  • No progress. No account. Cash about 0.00 EUR ;)
Gregory: the cache in the register is actually 819 EUR, but we have also open expenses to pay from the PPI GA and the first TT, so in the result the sum is about zero.
