Hi again everyone,

I haven't received any response so far - could you please reply and explain
how you plan to organize the conference in a way that prevents remote
attendees from being at a disadvantage. I still find this essential with
the background of restrictive rules that still exist regarding entering the
US at the time of the conference, in particular for an international
organisation like the Unicode consortium?
