Convention 2016 and future

During the last KI-EF board meeting in Bucharest the convention host committee gave a short presentation about the convention in Villach. Beside some general info and the programm the Host Committe also made some suggestions for the future. The background: Every year KI-EF gets a new board and a new KI-EF president with his preferences for “his”  convention. And every year a new Host Committee has to find out, how to organize a convention. The suggestion: installing an Advisor for the Host Committee in charge for at least three years. The details will be discussed in Villach.
