This year's Tamil Internet Conference which took place in Cologne from the 23rd till the 25th of Octobre ( and on under the tag "infitt 2009") was a huge success for both our institute and the University of Cologne

I would like to express my gratitude to all those who helped to make this conference become such a success. I would particularly like to thank my students: Marina Friesen, Nadine Geßner, Robert Hilden, Jennifer Klenk, Jana Koshy, Andrea Lau, Bahinta Punanantarajah and Niclas Weimar

I am very indebted to Mr. Parttipan who contacted us two days before the inauguration of the conference and introduced himself as a Tamil who lives in Cologne and offered his assistance as a volunteer. His contribution to the overall success of the conference was immense.

I would like to thank all of you very much. A detailed report including pictures and videoclips will soon be available on this site.

Ulrike Niklas
