Found big university in South Africa in the fall (their spring). Their commitment is somewhat in question (good pt. From Esteban). Ed will call the University tomorrow and will inform Eden afterwards.
Need to gauge response to this proposed location, etc.
Most people need to get a visa (sooner than later). Esteban: visa may not be necessary
Timeframe during vacation in SA. Want to attract non-users so need to know soon.
Looked at Paris but nothing under $100k. Barcelona also considered but fell through.
Cecilia: what are the considerations?
Univ to devote space, classes, equipment, etc. for duration of 4 day conference
Open edX manages catering, banners, marketing and bring attendees and manage ticketing
Open edX NOT a requirement
Always looking for proposals (universities, etc.)! Anyone?
