WBF Barcelona

The Barcelona WBF was good, it was well organised and of course in a lovely city and even the weather was fine. There were people from 23 countries there. I met many people that I have known for years from previous conferences and working with some of them and also made new friends.
And I was presented with the Guido Carlo-Stella Award, which I am very pleased about, thank you all. I remember Guido from the early years of the EBF.
Much of the conference was oriented toward the S95 domain and Manufacturing Excecution Systems. It is challenging to absorb so much information- 25 papers - in 2 days, so I am reviewing the papers again in my own time, and refreshing my knowledge of S95.
