Dear ALT members,

We are launching a call for bids for the organization of ALT11 in 2015. 
As agreed in 2008, conferences will follow the cycle “Europe, America, 
Other”. After ALT9 in Hong Kong and ALT10 in Leipzig, ALT11 will be held 
in (North or Latin) America.

We would like to invite any department interested in making a bid for 
the 2015 ALT conference to do so by contacting the president at 
<johanna at> by February 15th 2012. To help the executive 
committee in considering bids, we ask you to answer the questions below, 
which cover basic information about the venue and its infrastructure. 
The Executive Committee will aim to reach a decision by March 15th.

With best wishes,

Johanna Nichols (President)
Jean-Christophe Verstraete (Secretary-Treasurer)
