Some generic comments about LGM site selection.
I'm concerned that the decision-making about the most imminent LGM can
become such a wide-open process.
For 2014, the only sites under discussion should be places where there
is a proposal of a specific site, with a clear organizer or group, who
hopefully have some track record of being able to organize events.
Obviously, previous sites and organizers have a leg up on this, but we
can't afford last minute surprises. I would hate to see a bad or poorly
attended LGM. This year we had the strength and knowledge of Femke, but
even so the internet connection was quite inadequate for a
For two years into the future, then some proposals can be more tenuous,
but even so there should be some champion who can flesh out some details
about who will organize the event, know that there is local support of
services and maybe even money, and some concrete details about what the
community has to offer specifically regarding LGM.
I enjoy traveling, and certainly have ideas about what places I would
like to visit some day, but LGM isn't some travelogue that always must
seek out new places to go. I think what we want is that each meeting is
a success and each in some way better than the last.
Perhaps one thing which might help would be the creation of a manual of
sorts which details the particular needs which LGM has, so that anyone
proposing to host LGM knows what they need to put together.
