BoostCon Paris would be cool indeed. One of the considerations of having
it also once (or once every X year) in Europe is that there are also
many European people working on Boost Libraries, they often do it in
spare time and expenses are theirs, having it in Europe makes it more
easy to come.
I also mentioned (off-list) Amsterdam, also a hub, and in that case I
could be of help.
However, we also have to take into account the continuous availability
of the convenient facilities in Aspen, which are (AFAIU) easily
organized a year before, so now for 2011, such that the conference can
be organized smoothly there, every year without the need to gather a new
group of volunteers each year.
