Greetings, All,

Sounds like you had a wonderful time in Novosibirsk. The prices and
location look ok, though I understand totally where Roger is coming from
(regarding finances!). What worries me are the dates. At the end of the
academic year we are completely swamped with administration and it may be
difficult to get away in early June, though it's better than later in June.
Beginning of July is best, but perhaps the date change is not an option.

Thanks so much for being involved in organizing and asking questions.
