----HOW COULD CONFERENCES BE BETTER ORGANIZED:

10) COMMENTS?

I think it was really well organized. The only "problem" was to begin the talks on time after breaks/lunch, and managing the time for the talk and questions, I mean, between one talk and the other there should be a 5-10 minutes gap for questions, or the speakers should be informed that the real time of their talks should be 5-10 minutes less than the requested.

----OTHER:

11) REMARKS

It was my first time in a TUG Conference. The only thing I can say is that I enjoyed it as much as possible. In general all talks were more than I expected, and it was a pleasure to meet such wonderful people there. THANKS A LOT.
