I would kindly ask for an extension of the deadline. We are working on submissions from Ghana and we are running late. As I am travelling in West and East Africa until 23 June, it would be good to get an extension. I am also trying to organise two other submissions ( from East and West Africa), so an extension would be most welcomed.

Jørn Braa.
