Radiance workshop 2005

Dear fellow Radiance users,

Greg, John M, and myself had a little offline discussion considering the
date and place of the 2005 Radiance workshop. With this email, we invite you
to share your opinions considering a preferred date and location for the
next workshop.

The NRC could host the workshop next August in conjunction with the IBPSA
conference 2005 which will take place in Montreal, Canada
(http://www.ibpsa.ca/bs2005/ ) from Monday,
August 15th to Thursday, August 18th. The workshop would take place on the
Thursday and Friday before the conference (August 11th & 12th) at the School
of Architecture at McGill. The school is located in downtown Montreal within
easy walking distance from restaurants and cafes. The benefit of organizing
the workshop in conjunction with a major building simulation conference
might be that some individuals (including myself) have an easier time
internally justifying travel expenses to attend a major conference than an
informal workshop.

John offered to host the 2006 workshop in the UK. Please let us know your
preference for either location.

Best regards,

Christoph

PS: Montreal and surroundings are definitely worth a trip in case you have
not been here before. There are plenty of weekend/ after meeting activities
from Moshe Safdie's Habitat (that would make a nice Radiance model) to
canoeing in the Laurentians.

I would definitively support the Montreal option (I live here) :).

I would like to point out that the http://www.lichtplaner.com/ software has
been developped to work in the 3ds max software , which is also developped
and designed from Montreal. Maybe something may be provided by Discreet for
that.. I'll have to ask around.

Best regards,

Pierre-Félix Breton

I would second Pierre-Felix's motion. It would be great for me as well to have an east coast/North America venue, and I agree with Christoph, Montreal is a great city!

Maybe I'll make it a one-way trip. ~8-\

I plan to buy a return ticket myself, to make it look like I'm just attending a meeting.
