Alright, so we completed our Summit. Overall, it was pretty successful I think, about 40 people
attended at least one of the 2 days. Below are some of the thoughts I collected while organizing


— Leif

The below is also shared via this Evernote link:

	• One of the most frustrating things to deal with is getting appropriate A/V equipment
(and software / accounts / services) to be able to allow for remote participation. Some ideas
could be to provide
		• Actual hardware such as cameras, high end microphones (satellite microphones would be
good), or going hog wild, advanced TP devices.
		• Software as appropriate for helping with this (streaming / group chats etc.)
		• Perhaps get account(s) with service providers such as YouTube event streaming (closed
beta I think?), WebEx, Cisco/Tandberg TP or Citrix.

	• A check list for all things that *must* be done per ASF requirements (e.g. trademarks).
	• Check list for other things that the organizer should be aware of. Examples:
		• Session schedules
		• Session Chairs
		• Where to post these schedules
	• How to get the word out in general. PR / Press help.
	• Tools / sites to help with registrations, schedules, calendar, and such planning

	• How (if any) help can people get from Travel budget. How would an organizer look into
this ?
	• Sponsoring in general. This is a big void for me personally, we’re lucky to have PMC
members who can get lunches and locations for our meetings :).
