I’ve been to banff/canada for a week to attend the international conference on interactive tabletops and surfaces 2009. Apart from the high quality of that conference, there were a lot of social happenings with the researchers, e.g. having interesting and productive talks while enjoying canadian beer in some of the beautiful pubs and restaurants in banff. Also the banquet with banquet speaker Chia Shen was great. I haven’t had such a delicious dinner so far and i’m pretty sure that it was quite expensive.. Thank goodness it was paid by the conference hehe
Oh and the view onto toronto at night (from the airplane) is soo beautiful.
