Judging by 250 delegates a day, overwhelmingly positive feedback, the high

but we are currently exploring 2014 as it coincides with some significant


We might need a 3 day-long event again to allow time cover a wide range of
topics and to have longer professional development sessions. But we welcome
views about running a 2 day long conference. Or we can have 2 days of issues
sessions followed by a workshop day. 


Other options and formats have been floated by the success ASC2012. We may
not yet have resources to run a big gig every year but it might be good to
have some national attraction in-between the major biennial conferences.
