1. Can I come dressed as my favorite quant or economist? But what if I really really like that economist?2. Should I check my ego at the door? What about my private jet?3. Can we play "pin the asset bubble on the central banker"?4. Will volatility grow during the night?5. Will I be fully hedged at the end of the night?

Organise it more frequently; what about a "Wilmott weekend" to Portmerion, or Vienna?

Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.
