At the SWAT4LS meeting in Edinburgh. After the melee of teaching over the last two months, it’s a real delight to be back in a research environment, to have some real quality time writing emails, while someone is talking in the background.

So far, it’s been pretty good. I’m surprised by the size (75+ delegates) and the large number of papers submitted (40ish). They seem to have really hit the time right. The talks so far have been interesting; lots of integration, lots of querying, and far more architecture diagrams than I want to look at in one day.
