I'd like to personally thank Suchith and the team at Nottingham for a
really great conference. It was a good mix of academic and non-academic,
the workshops and talks were great, the venue was lovely, and a good time
was had by all. The weather was also lovely, proving that it can be nice in
the UK in September :-)
