I don't think it is premature to ask the question of location
and format. We should also ask when? I was thinking in terms
of April or May - roughly one year from the last meeting that
was hosted by City College in New York City last year.

I like Tim's suggestion about the format and location however
I would be even more pleased if we could find a venue like
this in Europe. Open source Axiom is already supported by an
international group of developers and the Axiom web site
regularly records frequent access to the web site from more
than 80 countries around the world. I think we should try to
organize face-to-face meetings in several different parts of
the world. But of course we do need a host organization.

I also think that very soon we should advertise for written
contributions to the Axiom meeting and plan to publish these
papers in some manner - perhaps in co-operation with a
recognized journal. Real publications count for a lot of the
people who are potential contributors to Axiom.

Finally, I think we should establish an organizing committee.
I am certainly willing to be part of such a committee. Who
else would like to volunteer? Or perhaps you might wish it
nominate someone else?
