Brussels sounds fine - I have never been there, and I have a lot of spare
vaccation time then.

I think we would mostly exchange information and discuss things. Stefan is
a keynote speaker at the main conference, so we will have something to
start from there. Also there are other people who has submitted abstarcts
for presentations - if they are accepted at the main conference, we will
have them at starting point too. If they are not accepted at the main
conference, maybe they could be presented at our SW day? Otherways, I
think by then we have goten to know each other in a way, and have
questions for each other, and can help each other in many ways. Questions
and problems will be just as valuable as answers and solutions.

 In my experience, deaf people are master communicators. I guess we have
to use whatever works, which may be written English with 'natural signing'
and mouthing (with or without voice). Depends on the group size, and the
particular people in the group.
