EclipseCon Europe 2014 by Countries

EclipseCon Europe 2014 - I liked it. Not sure what others think, but I really liked it! In any case we will diligently evaluate our attendee survey (Hint: In case you haven't done it yet, please do so). And as always, we will publish the results.

One interesting piece of data was the attendance by country that my colleague Roxanne has put together. It shows that we are not just a German conference, but a truly European and international one. German attendance is still above 50%. But as the number of attendees was growing again by a good percentage to 600, so was the number of attendees from other countries. Here is the graph that Roxanne was putting together:


So I thought I should tell Torkild that Norway is really moving up in the ranking. And after he has discussed with his resident scientist buddies he came back with an even more astonishing revelation: Based on their approach Norway is actually on the second rank! And here is what they discovered: If you compute the per-capita attendance, the ranking looks like this:


Welcome to the wonderful world of science!
