 extended-logo-composite-english.jpg Actual sasf extended program in table below  :   284-opening.JPG285-opening.JPG286-opening.JPG287-opening.JPG

19 activities from 13 organizations were enlarged, including 3 distance encounters with japan and mexico

original version of sasf extended program, published in sasf website on november 15th  , with 60 activities and 45 organisations, was not respected, due to last moment logistical mishaps : the  real rooms corresponding to the T1 and S1 rooms indicated in this  on line program  in the left column where not identified timely, and final paper sasf program was made on 17th evening, without consideration of enlargement rooms , so most unfortunately, the 60 tentatively enlarged activities were scattered into to rooms without internet  -  

5 rooms were finally identified on november 18th in Mokarram building  and installed with broadband internet -BUT... they were unanounced in the sasf paper program,,  which caused  most of the enlarger organizations contacted by the  extension team  on 18th at night , to give up enlargement of their activity:  because that meant moving to a room unanounced in the sasf paper program. We extend our apologies for this situation 

Some others organisations that had not anounced enlargement were also invited to move to Mokarram rooms on november 18th and did enjoy it The support team managed successfully to support 4 activities in parallel, as was initially planned

Newness of the concept for many participants and lack of time for  preliminary contacts due to Eid holiday unanavailability, plus  the scheduling in non internet rooms of organisation willing to explore remote participation in anj improvised mode, accounted for the limited asian based remote participation on line : mainly  a group in Australia  that participated in several activity chatrooms and enjoyed it very much and distance encounter with Japan 


 We thus invite organisations that showed interest to enlarge to follow on at their own pace their exploration of enlargement  sasf 50 chatrooms and video channels are created  and can be used by organisations after sasf for their own purposes
 Sasf extended team is available to give dry run extension training by skype : contact   "sasfbd.extension at gmail.com"

Extension is a global concept that requires communication effort  about extension and an appropriate website welcoming registration of remote participants and local activities ( sasf website has been friendly to extension and it is hoped it will be used again in 2012)
Here participants of SASF extended , web, and communication team have met on 25th november after SASF to talk about next steps in relation with larger social forum extended initiative
