Summer in the City

Basically one month after the last snowfall (on 3 May 2011!) Warsaw now we can truely say - Summer will also come to Poland. Sun, with it light and warm weather has finally arrived ... YES! :-)

E-Voting made it into the German Dictionary DUDEN

One of the standard dictionaries for contemporary German has added "E-Voting" - and for those remembering discussions about correct spelling of "E-Voting" in German, it is spelled with capitalized "E" and "V" (similiar to "E-Mail") and with a hyphen "-".

In English - following the Chicago school - "e-voting" is not capitalized, only the "E-" at the beginning of sentences or in titles, so it would the be "E-voting".

Re-Vote 2011 in Trento/Italy

Once more I will have the opportunity to travel to the beautiful city of Trento/Italy later this summer. This time I have been asked to give the opening keynote to the "International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Electronic Voting Systems" on 29 August 2011.

If you're interested to submit a paper - the deadline for submission has been extended until 8 June 2011. So still time to come up with something! :-)
