The last week a few speakers cancelled due to circumstances. T-DOSE organisation is very sorry to not have Julian Todd and Francis Irving talk about their "Hacking Democracy" at T-DOSE 2007. They canceled due to upcoming selections in UK. Here is an excerpt from the cancellation:

Francis Irving: "Over the last few days, it has become clear that there is going to be a surprise General Election in the UK. We have a dumb electoral system where the Prime Minister can call an election at any time, and it looks pretty certain he is going to. This means we have lots of work to do making a special website reminding voters of how their MPs voted in Parliament over the last few years. So we are unable to attend the conference. I'm very sorry about this, as it would have been great to give the talk."

All changes to the schedule are on Sunday, so speakers and visitors are recommended to recheck the times of talks they are giving or attending. As you can see in the schedule there are a few slots open now. We would like to give Open Source projects that are attending T-DOSE the chance to submit a talk.
