It doesn’t bother me so much the place of the event (yet again, standard-unimaginative-dull Bernardine near Portorož…if you like tons and tons of concrete along the sea coast, you’ll probably enjoy both, Bernardin and Portorož.:-), as the noticeable lack of prominent foreign speakers. Yeah, I know – SIOUG 2007 will be hard to beat, especially when SIOUG is competing with Oracle Open Word, which will take place in the same week of September (grin).
With one or two presentations that I would like to attend on Monday and Tuesday I could not justify wasting two full days there – I sincerely tried to put together a full day agenda for the Monday and Tuesday, without a success. The content that would sparkle my interest just isn’t there. The last day of the conference is more promising. If I’ll attend SIOUG 2008 at all, I’ll book the last day of the conference – to listen to Jože, Riyaj and Jurij.
