Evoke is going to cologne this year. the location is going to be the main entrance hall of the fh (university of applied
sciences) in cologne-deutz, only 10 minutes away from the heart of the city.
One major advantage of the cologne location is that we will have enough space for everybody --
unlike in the theatersaal in aachen.
More information on the location (including some more photos) and on traveling issues will follow soon.
finally the photos and description are there:
