Technical University, simple for me - I live around the corner, compared
to you ;-)

Still the Question from Fons has not been answered yet,

Who are you? The Staff of the TU Rektor? Have you got a website up (if
not: do you need any help, to setup one?)

TUs name has some reputation, so if the TU would ask for sponsoring
travelling costs, it may have a good chance to get some checks. Though
sponsoring culture is somewhat underdeveloped in Germ...

Yeahhh LACs for everybody everywhere!!
Out of obvious reasons (refer my nick) I like the idea of having a LAC
here in Berlin very much ;-) But of course I agree, that travelling
costs should be no hindrance for interesting and interested
international Linux-Audio-Makers to come.
So fundraising should be made....

best regards

p.s.: I would be honoured to host a guest in my flat and donate a small
amount of money to buy tickets(sometimes it is not perfectly easy for us
to raise the money to pay the rent for the abovementioned flat, so dont
expect a Shuttleworthish amount ;-) ).
