Hi CKAN team and supporters

The Libre software meeting will take place in Bruxels from the 6th to the 
11th of July and I think it would be great if someone from the OKFN team 
would be able to do a presentation about CKAN.
Other speakers can also propose a paper related to open data projects or 
open source tools.

You will find below the details

budget, the LSM can reimburse some speakers. Note: Our budget being 
limited, the LSM will favor people with limited income and without 
alternative solutions.
