Many participants asked lsbc to hold the event for a second time which we would be pleased to do. With this in mind we would appreciate any feedback on the first event (content, lectures versus panels, venue etc.,) so that we can improve on it when organising the second.

We were also asked by many participants if the talks would be made available. They are in the form of password protected non editable pdf accessible only to participants. Also there is an overview of the conference in Polish and English available by prepared by two of the delegates from BTM-Mazovia.
