Many thanks also to the organizers of EGAS46 from the Université of Lille 1. It was not obvious until we arrived that exhibitors are also invited to take part in excursions and the evening program - thanks again.
And many thanks about your feedback on the controller. There were requests for a rack-mountable controller at EGAS46, as there were at DPG-SAMOP and APS-DAMOP. We have now prototyped an optional standard rack mount kit with pull-out rails. This will be available for users to retrofit, as well as an option for new controllers.
