@Peter: just on this point, can I clarify - conference attendance costs are
*less* than last year - the base ticket is €75 (and travel London - Geneva
is, from what I can tell, cheaper than London - Helsinki :-) )

We'd really like to ensure folks aren't excluded because of cost issues
wherever possible ...


I am in favour of having an Open Transport weekend somewhere in Europe
