 Not at the moment... will be in the future. Currently I'm gathering
support from several institutions. Basically what I am planning to do is
the following:

 * Fix space (will enable to set a date)
 * Set a date for event
 * Form a webpage for the event (wordpress based)
 * Approach and gather strategical partners (locally)
 * Plan Communication
 * Plan Deployment
 * Approach Fedora with a full event plan seeking for support
 * Discuss support and finish the master plan (Fedora brand promotion,
involvement, support etc)
 * Go live.

 I'm trying to give no overload to people on Fedora neither mess with
the on-going stuff.
 I will go to ambassadors once I have dates, spots, needs, requirements,
etc with a direct proposal for Fedora Ambassadors to analyze and provide

 I do want some local institutions involved, so I need to build first a
nice cost/benefits relation to favor them, since they are the ones
injecting the resources for this to happen, in orders words, they pay
for our promotion. I managed to "scare" the Administrator/Dean of my
institution already with the list of people involved on this and
organizations I want to reach ;) It's in the good track and they
required me a full document on the event so that they can send to their
Marketing Department for evaluation. They organize around 180 events
each year, so this is the most important thing, without fixing first the
involvement of my Institute for the promotion on this event and
establishing an approach between Fedora and IPAM. I'll take this into
ambassadors in the end of this process, when I actually have something
to show ;)
