I went to give an intense lecture on BCEA and then a seminar on our work on EVPPI a couple of years back — and I did have a lot of fun, despite the very cold weather (but then it was in February, so possibly much worse than this time around).

More importantly, I think the guys at DARTH are doing a very nice and complementary work on pushing people around so that they use R as much as possible in economic evaluation and so I think events like this are absolutely great!
