Hi Ed,

Do you have the complete evaluation? In the 2011 Conference the  
presence at the talks was severely undercounted and I do not know if  
this has been updated in the data that you have. For example, on  
Wednesday they counted
70% attendance when 98% of the evaluations were returned, which  
reflects the true attendance. I asked GRC at the time to correct this  
in the evaluations, but do not know if they actually included these  
corrections in the data they sent to you. I just wanted to make sure  
that you are comparing up-to-date figures. As you know, attendance is  
a major factor in the conference evaluations.

Otherwise, it is great to hear that the conference had this great  
success. Congratulations.
