    This is a great idea and wonderful for those of us who could not
    attend this conference. I am however mildly surprised to see all the
    papers, and even the images(!) sitting on the server wrapped up in a
    variety of the MS-WORD format that even my wordview program can not
    grok! Does it cost so much more ressources to save these documents as
    HTML or some other portable format that is usable across different
    computing platforms?

    All the best,
