    • Attendence was once again good overall (188) and at each session (~50)
    • How about presentations without the invitation for abstracts??
    • Gathertown for the Hackathon - Thoughts on that event ??
    • Theory/GWS session - few slides - lots of discussion/volunteering - puts emphasis on followup
      • Feedback on the closed April Interop experience
        • Good attendance, in numbers, but how to feel whether it was active participation or not: Q&A, further feedback from audience, new voices besides usual suspects?
        • Feeling the urge to get back to in person meetings (not said it has to be always, and we can think hybrid to keep remote attendance as a chance for those who cannot travel), we risk to loose VO community health and momentum
        • If virtual again, try a different time schedule, overnight session are disruptive (it might be easier to change day-night cycle for a few days than do another marathon for a week)
        • Gather Town experiences proved to be good and fruitful
