For what it is worth, we have discussed GUADLAC in previous years (I
think as far back as 2004, maybe 2003?) but it typically foundered on
travel costs, which were always unacceptably high for some large group
(given the continent's large size). In the end regional conferences
(like FISL or the various get-togethers) seemed more
reasonable. That said, I agree it would be cool and if people can make
it happen I'm sure we could get some support for it- I'd love to go.
