every once in a thousand emails I hit a magic shortcut I never know of and
send an incomplete email out...


I never guaranteed any structure, and I can say now that it was quite a
bluff that I could pull something off, as I had never done that... and...
well... these days, if we were to do it here, it'd be a lot more modest...

And anyway, we had a pretty nice technical structure, but also no spatial
system whatsoever...

what I', trying to say is that you shouldn't worry much about being fancy
and meeting any standard requirements. Well, let me refer to some of your

I guess anything earlier than 5 years (2021) is a progress :D we never had
two years in a row, but sure i'd personally love to see PdCons every year.
But looks like 2018 is more like it...

the college can provide the necessary infrastructure
yeah, that all sounds great

What helps a lot with these kind of things is a good organization, that you
guys provides us all the best information on how to get around, also
specially made maps with detailed transportation info, etc... just work out
good logistics with enough time in schedule to get around.

I can say we did offer a good structure, but I can also say that the
hardest part and what's more important is to offer a well organized event.

I can add more thoughts as this thread progresses ;)
