Lund or Malmö Mar 24, 2009

Dear colleagues! Thank you for supporting my idea! Dear Hans, hopefully, next time you can join us. Should we choose Lund as our meeting point? If yes, could you please make any suggestions regarding time and place (any special requests like a vegetarian restaurant etc). Thank you one more time.

Lund or Malmö Mar 24, 2009

I would prefer Lund, but will attend also if a majority votes for Malmö.

Lund Mar 24, 2009

For me, of course, Lund would be the best variant as well since I live here but I also think that it would be easier for the colleagues reaching Lund by train or bus - exactly like Annika has said, something closer to the station, and I should say that nearly all cafes in Lund are very close to the station. So please if anybody is strongly against Lund, let us know, otherwise I will start looking for the options in Lund. Thank you.

Lund watering holes Mar 25, 2009

Here's hoping for fine weather so we can eat outside! A couple of suggestions. Kulturkrogen (at Kulturen) might be useful as it covers all bases including veggie, and certainly used to be unfazed by packs of academics nursing their beers for hours on end. Stortorget another possibility, but more town than gown, small tables so harder to seat a group well, and usually heaving with people once the sun comes out. Tegners may stop serving too early to be practical. All an easy stroll from the statio... See more

thank you, Charlotte! Mar 25, 2009

Thank you, Charlotte! Kulturkrogen sounds as an excellent idea, a very nice place, 10 min walking distance from the station.

should we move our meeting? Mar 26, 2009

Dear colleagues! Should we move our meeting because Antje and probably some other colleagues are in Borås on the 26th or should we stick to the 26th and in several months if everything is going smoothly arrange another meeting?

A week later is fine by me Mar 26, 2009

Wouldn't mind moving the powwow to a week later, since I'm also thinking about attending the conference...

For Maria Mar 27, 2009

Hello Maria! It would be nice to see you again.
Right now we are waiting for Charlotte's and Helena's decisions since the 26 th of April suits them but we do not know if they can make it on the 3d of May. If they can not, I am afraid we will have to choose the 26th because it was the first choice and they have confirmed their interest.

New date Mar 27, 2009

I am really sorry, I can't attend May 3, but if a majority prefers that date, it is ok by me for you to go ahead and move the event. I only hope there will be more opportunites, I had really looked forward to thisicon_smile.gif

Changing dates Mar 27, 2009

I definitely don't want to mess up your Powwow plans - go for the 26th if that suits you best! But maybe we can arrange another meeting in autumn then? I cannot get away from home easily (babysitter problems...) so I'd be glad to have another powwow in Lund at some time.icon_smile.gif

Ok, the 26th of April, 13.00 Mar 27, 2009

Ok, so this time it should be the 26th of April, 13.00. And yes, we can definitely arrange another meeting, for example, in the end of September, probably should be announced a little bit earlier, in June for instance.

Thanks Vanda for your reply Mar 27, 2009

I can understand it would be a mess to change the schedule now. I will try anyway to go 26 April. If not it would be a pleasure to meet all of you in September.

I will get in touch anyway later.

For Karin - venue Apr 2, 2009

The majority has voted for Lund, and so far it should be Kulturkrogen. I think I would ask everybody to confirm their participation before the 18th of April to be able to book this cafe - it is not that big and quite popular.
