<nettime> Conferences as a touristic product.


For some time, I have been saying that conferences, as a format, suck and 
should be discarded altogether - well, at least be sensibly curtailed. 
Proof of concept seems that the format has now metastasied into an 
entertainment/touristic formula, to witt, the e-amail I received today 
(and many of you undoubtedly too)

cheers from Barcelona, patrizio and Diiiinooos!

We promote the concept of small family style conferences, with the
stress on discussions and elaborations of joint future activities
(cooperation, research proposals, outsourcing). All those who attended
our conferences once, love to come back. For more information, reply to
this email, or contact us via our web page, and the conference
management will write to you.

Sincerely Yours,

Program Committee

PS - If you like to submit a paper to one of our journals, rather than
attending a conference, please let us know. If you reply (with SUBSCRIBE 
in the subject), we will be informing you about our future conferences, 
4 times per year. If you do not reply, we will not be contacting you 
again after the current academic year is over.

If you like to obtain more information about a conference from this call,
please reply with the conference CITY and COUNTRY in the subject.
