Yes, but it would seem that ORA would be supremely qualified to do
good copy editing. ;)
Me, I like the printed proceedings, even more so a year or so after
the conference. I like reading the papers -- on paper. I don't know
how much it adds, but even $20-$50 on the price of the big conference
seems like a good value to me.
