CATS 2008

CATS 2008 is taking place in Wollongong in two weeks. The PC chairs have been able to attract Eric Allender as the invited speaker. I heard him give a great invited talk almost ten years ago so I'm looking forward to the talk.

There will also be the usual business meeting to look forward to. An interesting question that we've discussed at every meeting I attended is how to make CATS more popular. How can we increase the number of paper submissions and the number of attendants? And where should we focus our attention: on Australia, Australasia or the whole world?

The sad truth is that not even the majority of Australian CS theory community attends CATS. What can we do to attract this community? Any ideas?
