Dear $ALL, since nobody has replied to the call for volunteers for the IT-Kongress event (see <https://email@example.com/msg00278.html>), and since we've lost a sponsor, compared to the previous years, it is very likely that X2Go: The Gathering 2018 will have to take place at Stuttgart's hackerspace "shackspace" (<https://shackspace.de/>) - "will have to" meaning that we're out of suitable alternatives due to both time/volunteer staff as well as financial constraints. Thus, there will be no voting period regarding the location this year, we'll simply have to pick the only option that seems to be left at the moment.
The last-resort fallback option would be Ulm's youth hostel (both as an event location as well as for sleeping arrangements), but this would mean groups of 4 people would have to share one room, as they do not offer smaller rooms - which, judging from previous years' feedback, is not a situation most of our participants would be happy with. This is why we're not offering a poll with Stuttgart and Ulm as options. For Stuttgart, we're looking at a hostel-like place that offers single and double rooms, as well as at a hotel nearby, for people that prefer a higher-quality sleeping arrangement. Details will be published on the Wiki at <https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/events:x2go-gathering-2018> as soon as the two sites have confirmed room availability and replied with their booking cancellation terms.
