Yes and surpassed my expectations.

Good to hear about things which are outside of my normal mapping
experience. Talks were informative, entertaining and well presented.
Plenty of new ideas for the future and people to discuss them with.
> 4 What was bad about the conference?

It would be good to get a better description of each talk prior to the
conference, especially if people have to choose between multiple tracks.

> 5 Was it good value for money?
Yes. As good as many commercial conferences which often cost much more.

I think it was about right. 
> 7 Was the food OK?
Yes it was good
> 8 Was the beer OK?
Yes. and a convenient location even if it took a while to get served
when busy.
> 9 Where should it be held next year?
A major city seems good for accomodation, transport links etc.

Maybe Amsterdam would be a good place to discuss the wonderful things
which will have been done to maintain/extend/utilise the AND data in a
years time.

It was a shame that the Wifi was unreliable.

Thanks to everyone that helped organise, presented, sponsored or
otherwise contributed to the conference.
