After evaluating the three proposals and talking to each potential hosts for several weeks, we are now happy to announce that we will do a reconnaissance mission for WBMv12 to Paris, France, from Dec 6 to Dec 8th!

Back in 2013, we did a babel hackaton at GareXP and LeLoop , it was fun:

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
