When do you think it'd be a good time?
could we postpone the decision to say October,

I know that between late May and early August there is housing available on campus at quite cheap rates (roughly $20/night/person). OTOH travel is probably more expensive at that time of year.

From my own standpoint, any time of the year is ok.

didn't know about these problems with the US (unless they're political/philosophical/ethical problems, which would be totally understandable, IMHO)
Yeah, I often have political/philosophical/ethical problems with the US as well (no smiley, I'm serious). OTOH, Roberto brings up the practical problem about Visas. I've not had to deal with that aspect of organizing meetings before, but I gather that we have resources here at the university to help with that. And my chair says that the department is more than willing to help by sponsoring attendees, etc. As a last ditch, I have a cousin who works in the consular division of the state department----maybe she can pull strings :)

Anyway, I'm more than happy to support however I can whatever the community decides is best. One advantage to deciding as early as possible is that it gives me more time to try and round up financial support.
