CONF: Additional information on German conference

Dear editors, a few minutes ago I posted a conference announcement. It's a pity that I forgot the registration information and it would be great, if you could add it:

"Anmeldung unter http://idis.uni-koeln.de/tagungen/kontinuitaeten-zaesuren-brueche/ bis zum 27.2.2014"

Thank you very much. I'm sorry that the announcement is only in German, but the conference will be also in German...

Sincerely, Bertold Scharf
