I mailed them that another member of the CentOS Promo SIG would be able 
to take over my presentation as to minimize their inconvenience and gave 
the following names with emailaddress :
GeerdDietgerHoffmann : ribalba at gmail.com (already a speaker)
Marcus Moeller : mail at marcus-moeller.de
Andreas Rogge : a.rogge at solvention.de

I asked them to confirm whether anybody else can take over my 
presentation or if they will reassign it themselves.
As soon as they inform me, I will relay the message
