Advertisment, sponsorship, promotion
Oliver gave a status report. The promotion teem has tweeted about the conference with good results, and ads have been sent to Linux Magazine for publication on their homepage. Oliver requests an up to date version of the logo for use in promotional material. Sponsors have been added to the homepage, and have contacted approximately seven potential sponsors, including previous sponsors. The treasurer reports that we don't strictly speaking need more sponsors to meet the budget, but that more would definitely help.

Nicholas reports that most thins are already in place, hardware wise. Some things regarding lighting may be procured, but nothing that will break the budget.
Sign up has slowed down a little. We need to promote the conference -- in particular early-bird tickers -- further to meet the attendance goals. Leif-Jöran suggests that we set timed deadline for early-bird tickets instead of ta maximum number, in order to get some help from artifical scarcity-effects in promotion.
Programme is mostly filled, excepting some slots that we are keeping as backup or don't expect/plan to fill.
TODO: Some speakers have requested somewhere to sleep. Everyone is encouraged to ask around for this. Someone will send an email about this to the list. (User:Stian)
Next meeting will be on 27/10 at 18.00 at Språkbanken. Aspects will coordinate extra meetings with involved parties as necessary.
