I'm from the Philippines too and that would introduce a VISA
acquisition issue for me. Maybe Americans would not have the same
problem though, but I for one do not have a VISA to any country in
For me personally it was more convenient to go to the US because I
have a VISA that allows me to enter the US until 2012.
That is something that needs to be considered if BoostCon would be
moved to Europe.

I would think that the availability of volunteers to make it happen
would be the main issue. Should we poll for volunteers and concrete
proposals instead of whether people will be attending?
