I don't think it is the role of the EPC board to decide on that. I am a
member of the board purely because the conference was organised in
Sweden and a non-profit organisation (with a board) was required to act
as the bank account holder in the country, so I volunteered to put my
name down for last year's event. That doesn't make me into
decision-maker on where to move the conference. Technically we should
have a yearly board meeting soon anyway, at which any member of the EPC
board may withdraw or be kicked out, anyhow. If you want to make it a
board decision, there would have to be a board meeting.

i.m.h.o. the location for 2006 should be a community decision. I believe
it was quite clear last year that the general plan was to move town
after 2 years in the same town, currently Göteborg. I think CERN is a
nice next step. That's me talking, not the still-board member.
