    Lieber Klaus,
    die Konferenz – so wichtig sie auch sein mag – findet aber erst im JUNI statt … . Zum Glück ist in Ihrem Text das Datum korrekt angegeben.
    Mit guten Grüßen und besten Wünschen zur bevorstehenden NSA-Konfernz –

    Jag hoppas att jag skal vara där :-)

    Should the web-page at http://www.histocrypt.org/ be adjusted to point to this new conference?
