This page is about possible speakers for the 4th Oekonux Conference. It lists people we are considering to invite directly to the conference (as opposed to those who may apply because of the CfC) This page has two purposes:

  1. Records possible candidates

  2. Rate these candidates

Please note: As has been decided we are going to invite at most half of the contributors individually. The rest should be a result of the Call for Contribution. So please check with [pox] before inviting someone officially.

Some guidelines for rating the suggestions:
