i) The place - I am attending oSC since 2012. Looking at the
trend,oSC12 probably had highest number of attendees. But yes we co
hosted oSC12 like this year. Number matters! I am still giving maximum
++ to oSC12 because the location. I believe It was easy to access to
most attendees being a capital city & relatively big city compare to
host cities for oSC13,14 & 15 respectively. It is obvious that, bigger
cities [population wise] always has large audience & contributors in
general. During oSC12 I met several openSUSE contributors who traveled
thousands of miles to attend oSC12 from outside & within Europe. Same
experience continued for oSC13.
ii) Technical/Audio~Video setup - Places like Universities already has
50~60% technical setup ready & we don't have to spend that much time &
energy on setting things up. I was lucky enough to attend 'Video
streaming and recording via Open-source software' session by Martin
Caj & continued by Juergen Weigert to get detailed information.

i) Length of conference - Yes we talk/complain about less audience on
4th i.e. last day of the conference. :-) feasibility check = Shall
we go with/try out 2 or 3 days conference structure instead of 4 day
structure? I am comparing openSUSE Asia 2 day summit last year + count
of attendees against recent oSC's.
