Another difficulty is presented by the lack of centralization of the various individualized events. The discussions and workshops are located throughout the city and can be difficult for the novice traveler to find, not to mention time consuming. You can end up traveling a hour and half to discover that the talk was canceled, or simply lacking in focus. Yesterday a large line formed at the Forum registration center. After asking several people what the line was for and receiving shrugs in return, it became evident that people were queuing with no idea what was at the end of the line.
They may still be there.
