Therefore, if you want to support the Workshop, you can choose to pay the "Supporter" price or make a donation. This will help us offer better services and organize events of ever higher quality (for example, we may pay the dinner to the speakers).
In addition, by paying the "Supporter" ticket, you'll also get:

We'd like, for all the people that plan to be at the dinner on 18/09/2008, to buy their tickets before September 8: that will help us in the organization and booking the restaurant. However you will be able to confirm and pay for attendees' dinner at conference reception (during registration).
