For various reasons I never made it to GHM this year, but I hear that it was a very successful event. Here is my suggestion for 2107:
In Europe there are various "Gruppenunterkunft" hostels - places which have basic accommodation plus a seminar room for smallish conferences. Why don't we hire such a place for the week-end? In 2016 attendees paid EUR 50 per day to attend GHM. On top of that, most would have had to pay for accommodation. If we get a good deal with the venue proprietor we can have people attend for EUR 50 per day *including* accommodation. I can see a number of other advantages to this plan too: * With accommodation and meeting in the same place, people will not be at the mercy of weather and public transport, when getting to and from. * We can have informal sessions late into the night. * Having everyone staying together, it'll be a better social experience. Perhaps somebody has already started with other plans. But if not - then what do you think? J' -- Avoid eavesdropping. Send strong encrypted email.
