annual conference. This year's FDSL will be held at the Nova Gorica Polytechnic
on Dec 1-3, 2006. FDSL was up until now, a biannual conference held in Potsdam &
Leipzig. Since this is the first time FDSL is organized only one year after the
last FDSL (FDSL 6 was held in Potsdam in 2005) and the first time it will travel
outside of Germany, it is given the name FDSL (halftime) 6.5.

This is the program of the FDSL 6.5 Conference
(http://www.p-ng.si/~fmarusic/fdsl/) that will be held in Nova Gorica
(Slovenia) between December 1 and 3, 2006.
