Summer conlangcons?

Hi all.

Are there going to be any conlangers in Leipzig or Vienna
between 17 and 27 May 2005?  I'm going to give a talk at the
Max Planck institute on Georgian morphosyntax at the Split-S
conference (at which will also be Marianne Mithun, Johanna Nichols,
and Bernard Comrie), and would like to meet up with anyone
who wants to chat and have lunch.  On the evening of the 22nd,
I'll be travelling to Vienna to see a friend and make contacts
with the university there.  I realize this may be late notice
for some of y'all, but better late than never.

Alternatively, later this summer, from 18-20 July, I'll also be
flying back to Europe for the LFG conference in Bergen, Norway.
I know for sure there are bunches of Scandinavian conlangers on here
-- you know who you are! But I would actually prefer a German/Austrian
conlangcon, since I'll be there for longer; as soon as the
Bergen conference is over, I'm flying to Boston for the LSA
summer institute.  Of course, if there are any conlangers in
New England, I'll be there for about six weeks, mostly attending
barbecues, schmoozing, and whatnot, so I'll have plenty of time
for a conlangcon on this side of the Pond as well.

Anyways, let's see what we can do...
