Lets invert the question:

If you (the bioclusters list) had a venue to choose from, say a major 
conference you might attend and get value from, or similar, which would 
it be?

This year we did it at BioIT World.  The subsequent week at ClusterWorld 
had a light turnout across the board.  SC03 had a heavy turn out.

Where would you (the users) like to see the seminar, how long/short 
would you like it?

I am asking for the purposes of information for the organizing team.  We 
have had this discussion, and there are a number of ideas floating 
about, but we want to make sure that what we do will maximize 
appeal/attendence/registration (it is not inexpensive to put these 
things together, even over an access grid).
