ConTeXt user meeting
The first international ConTeXt user meeting took place in Epen (The Netherlands) on March 24 and March 25 2007. For those who have missed it: you have to join next time, it was just great (thanks to Taco and other organizers)! Some material has been published online.
The second meeting will take place in Kranjska Gora in Slovenia (near Slovenian-Austrian-Italian border) from 20th-25th of August 2008.
