Hello everybody.

Below you will find the final programme of the ConTeXt User meeting
that will take place at the end of this month.

I am posting this message because I know some people cannot commit
themselves too far ahead of time, and we can still allow for one or
two extra participants, so last-minute registration is still possible
until the day after tomorrow, at

Happy TeXing,
