Hi Cameron, Sanghee,

indeed, I also was surprised by then umber of late entries - and marked 
for me the lesson "don't get nervous" ...

On the other side, for any LOC it is better to have as much attendees 
as needed to save uop the financing of the event ASAP, so I think it's 
worth thinking about, how to attract more people for early registering. 
It looks like, that price of early bird is not the mechanism that 

Any ideas on that welcome!

Regards, Till
