Dear Stefano,

I am very surprised by your e-mail and the way the EvAAL competition is
being included in the event in Sweden.

First, there was no information about having to pay a full registration fee
(this was not the case last year), without the possibility to get the
early-bird registration rate or any kind of student rate. Now, the
presentation of the system is being "downgraded" to a poster session
instead of a full-day workshop with scientific presentations.

In the interest of keeping the level of participation in further
competitions, I would like to ask you to reconsider the possibility to (at
least) be able to get the early-bird registration fee and to organize the
workshop in such a way that, if there are posters, they are allowed to be
in a visible place throughout the conference (not just on Tuesday) and use
the time slot on Tuesday for presentations of the systems.

Looking forward to your feedback on these two requests.
