a thought from a participant (and i guess that i'm among those raising 
the average age): while i very much enjoyed staying in private 
accomodation in mtl, i think it is even nicer for the participants to 
"team up" and live together (whether its youth hostel or hilton is only 
a question of budget)
the convention does not finish after the last concert, nor does it start 
with the first lecture.

however, a big drawback of this scheme (for which i haven't found a 
solution yet), is that the locals are kind of kept out of the fun (at 
least that was my impression when we did it in graz and all of you were 
doing party in the nunnery while we were busy trying to keep things running)
