Open Repositories 2012: Review

Offered for the benefit of present and future OR conference organizers.  Rated on the A-B-C-D-F scale.

Edinburgh: Wonderful city!  I hope to go back some day!
A+

Pollock Halls: More or less what I expected from a dorm.  Good breakfast.
B

Pre-conference: Good offerings.
A

Opening session:  Thought-provoking and context-setting keynote.
A

Lunches: Not enough food (or water!).  Friday’s entree served cold.  Inexplicable.
F

Breaks: Suggestion: early morning beverages (at least self-service).
B

Presentations: Good variety and depth.
A

Dinner and Ceilidh: What a treat!  So much fun that I’ll forgive the service staff for constantly removing our water glasses during the ceilidh.
A+
