This was an excellent conference - extremely efficiently run, interesting sessions, great networking. And the accommodation was good and the catering excellent - five star meals elegantly served. Not what I would have expected, given my previous experience of staying in university residences!
And another emailed to say
A woman in the 'Editing STM' course . . . came up to me after lunch and said that she remembered me from the conference, where she'd been a first timer. She said that it was the first time she'd been to such an event where she'd felt at home and surrounded by friendly people within a couple of hours of arriving - she really raved about it. She also said that the future of journal publishing seminar had transformed the way she viewed her work.
But, of course, the fact that the dust is settling means that it is time to begin preparing for next year’s conference in York. If anyone reading this blog has any suggestions about possible speakers, workshop topics, entertainment, sponsors, etc. please feel free to leave a comment. All suggestions gratefully received!
