20 July 2018   Video and evaluation of PCST 2018 Dunedin Conference

A survey of registrants to PCST 2018 in Dunedin shows registrants were largely 'very satisfied' or 'satisfied' with the conference, but also have suggestions on how future events might be improved.  The parallel sessions was the biggest source of complaint: the number, the way they were organised, and the content.
