It would indeed. We had a session at EP 2009 with groups interested in
holding EP2011/2012 and in fact we'll be following something similar to the
above, although I think it needs to be formalised.

Things that came out of the meeting were

* Any group proposing to hold EP must have helped with the previous
conference at least (ie what was decided at Vilnius 2007),
* Organising a successful local conference would be good start before
running EP,
* We may need to consider how big EP should be and whether it should be
capped in size.

Best wishes,
