Have you ever been to a conference where keynote speakers asked the participants to answer their questions moving on an imaginary matrix on the floor? Jordi Adell and Ismael Peña did it at The PLEConference 2010

Have you ever been to a conference where keynote speakers asked participants to get into an imaginary fishbowl? Cristina Costa and Scott Wilson did it at The PLE Conference 2011

Have you ever been to a conference where you had to join one side of the debate? Graham Attwell and Hugh Davis did it at The PLE Conference 2011

Have you ever been to a conference where there was a video workshop? Joyce Seitzinger ran a video workshop at the The PLE Conference 2010

Have you ever been to a conference with two venues... so far away and so close? THE PLE CONFERENCE 2012 has got two venues, Aveiro and Melbourne ... and one powerful team!

Do you need more proof? Can you see that the PLE Conference makes a difference? If you have never attended The PLE Conference, it’s about time that you did it! Even in a year when all of us have suffered budget cuts, the PLE Conference is the one you cannot cut. The one and only one you cannot miss. And remember... The PLE Conference is not about technology, it’s about learning! Could there be a better slogan? So, are you coming to The PLE Conference 2012? You can choose a venue: Aveiro or Melbourne? You will be very welcome in both! Don’t hesitate and join us on July 11-13... We will be expecting for you!

Great post! And thanks for the name-check. Actually, you reminded me to go check the #PLEConf account and start thinking on my own post, so I'll start working on it right away.

I haven't attended a lot of conferences this year, due to several reasons, but if there is one that I'm planning to attend, is this one. Not only because it's especially relevant for my research, or because I have attended the two previous ones, or because I have helped in some way, but mostly because it's a great opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues. Looking forward to meeting you in Aveiro! (or Melbourne. One can dream.)
