  1. Samuel T. X. Khoo says:

    Just a thought: perhaps in future the Melbourne Logic Workshop could be held so that it doesn’t clash with the Logic Summer School at ANU? (This year, it goes on from the 30th of November to the 11th of December.) That way, people can attend both if they wish.

  2. Greg says:

    Thanks for the feedback, Sam. We weren’t aware of the timing of the ANU LSS this year—of course we didn’t intend to clash. (We were pretty constrained for the timing this year because of staff movement over summer.)
