I propose we make a call for location for the 2012/and/  2013 conferences now, 
with a selection deadline of January 2012 for the 2012 event and a selection 
deadline of August 2012 for the 2013 event (assuming we keep the date of thee 
vent in October each year). We can then in future select the next location one 
year in advance and ensure the current team are able to involve the next team in 
preparations as a learning exercise.

so, you would like to issue the Call for Locations now, i.e. before the Paris 
conference takes place?

Yes, but with a goal of making a decision at the end of the year, not in time 
for Paris.

What do others think? From how I understood previous messages, people prefer to 
wait until after the Paris conference.

I understood your proposal was to actually announce the new location in Paris. I 
think that's impractical. But I do think it's possible to start the 
call-for-location process now, promote it in Paris, and announce the new 
location in January. The timeline for 2012 would look something like:

September 1st  : Announce the Call for Location for 2012
October 1st:  PR about the process, announce details of the Selection Panel
Paris conference:  Plenary slot explaining the process and timeline
November  15th:  Applications close
December:  Selection Panel reviews applications
January 15th: Location announced

And for 2013:

September 1st: Mention in PR there will be a 2013 selection process
November 15th:  Announce the Call for Location for 2013
January 15th:  Include news of 2013 process in PR
March:  Promote 2013 Call for Location
May 31st: Applications close
June/July: Selection Panel reviews applications
August 30th: 2013 venue announced
October: 2013 team attends and helps with 2012 conference
