I will figure out a way to  host it in Berlin in 2006 or 2007.  Before
giving  a definitive  answer, I  will attempt  to establish  it  as an
official workshop  supported by  my institue.  I  have not  much doubt
that this will be possible.

It  would be  nice  to  involve some  company  as co-organizer  and/or
sponsor. Anyone ?

Besides of this, I see two main questions:

1) How many participants will attend ?

If we  stay less then  60, the Weierstrass  Institute would be  a good
location.  Otherwise, we  would have to try to find a  place at one of
the universities.

2) When ?

I don't know how much everyone depends on the university schedules. If
yes,   we  are   bound  to   the  slots   September-mid   October  and
February-March (approximately).  Winter in  Berlin is quite nasty, but
this might have the advantage to let us concentrate on work...

By experience, autumn is a time  where we have many workshops here, so
it would be not optimal from our side.

Concerning the World Cup, if everyone  insists, I would not mind (as I
am not that deeply in soccer...),  but it might be hard to get flights
and hotels for reasonable prices. Though Berlin within this respect is
more easy than other European cities.

Seriously, I  think it is better to  have at least a  year between the
