Dear colleagues,
today we received the news from Krakow that both the Ibis Hotel
and the people in charge of the rooms at the Academy of Science
have extended the deadline for booking hotel rooms
and keeping an option on our big meeting room from June 15 to
July 10.
In the last few days I received a number
af emails and calls asking for an
extension of the deadline.
Well, here it is, more space to reflect and to make plans.
Down below you find the updated invitation.
Greetings from Berlin and see you in Krakow.

Dear colleagues,
please register now for the first international gathering on the
"InterActive Organization/open space-organization in Europe" taking
place Friday, September 3 and Saturday, September 4, 2004.
Since we announced these dates two months ago, ten new countries have
joined the European Union and 34 people expressed interest in
gathering on the topic of the InterActive Organization in Europe.
Meeting in Krakow, Poland with its old town and Viliczka Saltmine,
both on the list of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, will give us
an opportunity to explore the developments and challenges
of the InterActive Organization in the expanded Europe.
In addition, we will engage in the task of planning a longer and
larger gathering on the issues and opportunities around
the emerging InterActive Organizations in Europe in the year 2005.
Since the tender loving care of the InterActive Organization needs a
sustained, long range effort, we consider the meeting this year,
followed by a second one in 2005 as the beginning of a longer
learning experience...probably a lifelong journey.
