3 days of discussing Bond on an acdemical level with interesting topics, lectures and discussions, and of course a lot of nice people there. 29 panels with about 90 participiants from several countries, that was quite a lot, more than the organisers had expected. Which of course means that I'll need a bit of time to write a more detailed report on the event. You can also expect some interviews, in due time.
I certainly learned a lot on Bond, even though there were some things I already knew, or saw dicussed on this very forums.
As to the question asked above wether a publication of the papers and results is intended: the good news is that the answer is 'Yes', the not so good news is that it may take some time. Lots of the material has to be brought into a more 'printable' form, a publisher needs to be found etc,etc.
Greetings to all the people from the conference who find their way to CBn.

Unfortunately, you're right on that. It'll certainly be more than a year until we get to see something.
... It will probably take a couple of years, though, given how demanding is scholarly publication
