Please see the information about the At-Large Poster Session below. This is to ask all ALS representatives who will be participating in the At-Large Summit to bring information (pamphlets, magazines, posters, etc.) on describing your organization's activities with you to Mexico City.
This will be an excellent opportunity to present the activities of the AFRALO ALSes.
If you have any questions, please contact Wolf (wolf.ludwig at comunica-ch.net).

Subject: Call for the Summit Faire and Poster session
this is to announce a rather important programme segment of the Summit which is called:
*Fair and Poster Session*
More details on this session you will find in the document attached but let me highlight some essential point of it:
YOU are the ones conductiong this session and making it to a success!
It’s all about the variety of the ALS and RALO communities, to present yourself or the organisation you are representing in Mexico -- by means of flyers, brochures, booklets, posters (or whatsoever hand-outs) from your ALS and *in an inter-active way*.
As the title says, it’s not a conventional meeting or a thematic session but a *Faire* where you can expose and demonstrate the work you are doing in your day-to-day ALS-life. There will be a short welcome and introduction and afterwards you can present your material, discuss with people from other parts of the world. It’s an informal get-together, get-to-know-each-other, exchange of views and experiences, making contacts and for networking etc. And it’s understood as an important element for the community building within and among RALOs at ICANN’s first user Summit (more details you will find attached).
We therefore encourage you to bring along with you what you can carry (but be aware that no reimbursements for overloads of luggage – more than 20 kg – are foreseen ;-).
What we need to know ASAP is whether you need any kind of sophisticated technical equipment for your presentations during the evening. Tables, pin-boards, beamers and standard equipment like this will be provided. Any *further technical requirements or equipment* must be announced to me until Wednesday 11 February (to be forwarded to and organised by the Summit event management).
We are looking forward meeting you soon in Mexico!
