Minutes ago, Doro, who went with Bonfire to the press conference has written this in the csvi-ms.net forum:

I'm now back from Mannheim and a little bit wiped out. Nevertheless I want to give you a short info.
Thanks to Bonfires arm-twisting, we could attend the press conference. So we had the opportunity to listen attentively to Dr. Gold's and Dr. Hartung's explanations.
There were supposedly 15 to 20 pressmen present.
The whole event was organised in a way that the pressmen hardly had any time for questions. They didn't give the impression of being very interested anyway. Seemed to be an obligatory act for them.
But we have managed to give everyone of them a paper with the counterstatement. Sadly nobody of them wanted to talk to us more in-depth, though.
After a short coffee break, we distributed the rest of the 250 sheets we had all over the congress center.
Little side note: Because of the narrowness of the room, I happened to bump into Dr. Hartung and rolled over his briefcase when I went in. I hope it didn't took any damage.
That's it for today. I'm sure Bonfire will share his impressions with you after his long way home.
