Dear list,

there are ten days left for pre-registration to ConTeXt Meeting 2020
<https://meeting.contextgarden.net/2020/>. Pre-registration counts as early
bird registration. In one week we will start to discuss the situation in
the mailing list of participants and make a final decision whether to go on
with the meeting preparations or cancel the meeting. From development in
the Czech Republic so far one can guess, there will possibly be only light
local restrictions (obligation to wear masks, serving only take-away food),
if needed.

The abstracts <https://meeting.contextgarden.net/2020/abstracts.shtml> of
some talks are already available. We have fifteen pre-registered
participants <https://meeting.contextgarden.net/2020/participants.shtml>,
just enough to make the meeting possible. People will mostly arrive by car,
some on foot or by bus/train.

We have space for ten more participants. If you have never been at the
meeting, do not hesitate to pre-register
<https://meeting.contextgarden.net/2020/register.shtml> with discounts.
Those who visited Sibřina two years ago already know what to expect (talks,
friends, food, wine, beer, music, countryside, ...). Close to the capital,
but far enough to be safe for the whole week.

Take care,
Jano
