I'm all brained out after the conference. Expect an update-post sometime after next week or so, when I'm back on track again. In short, it was great. Heard lots of interesting talks, met lots of interesting people and managed to do some sightseeing as well. Now I'm in Edinburgh on a post-conference mini-holiday and have spent some hours wandering around Old Town. The amount of souvenir shops and tartan tat is amazing in a scary way. I can't believe how all those shops can make enough profit to survive (admittedly the mark-up must be huge, the tourists are many, but there is so much competition).
