There should be serious consideration for Canada only because visa issues
may prevent some participants from traveling into the US. I know that
some academic conferences have moved from US to Canada (even after already
being scheduled for a US location) due to recent changes and general
volitility in visa policies. Perhaps I'm making a big deal about something
that doesn't affect any contributors that would join us, so I hope that
anyone concerned about this can speak up (or contact Peff privately).
