I'd like to add my compliments to the organizers. I learned new things 
and met new people, and this year I really will try to get to some of 
the monthly meetings. Maybe even give a presentation.

On the whole, I thought it was better organized than last year. Things 
ran pretty close to schedule, and the location was more convenient and 
more suitable.

It was a shame the proceedings weren't available. Last year that made it 
easier to select talks, and it meant we came away with useful material 
about the talks we missed. I would suggest that at least the abstracts 
of all the talks should have been available. Suggestion: What if each 
the opening session included 5-minute lightning talks by all the 
presenters summarizing their presentations?

A feedback form might have been useful for the organizers.

Talks should have been rated by the level of the material, or what 
knowledge is assumed.

And on more important matters: I would have appreciated a greater 
variety of snacks at the coffee breaks. There are only so many burekas 
and croissants I can handle in one day.
