The previous system did work extremely well from my viewpoint, but like many homebrew systems, it did place quite a burden on its maintainers. With one thing and another, this burden could no longer be supported this year.

Launchpad might not be a perfect match, but it is reasonably close, has proven reliable, and is supported. Of course, if you have suggestions for next year, please don't keep them a secret. (There are any number of web-based conference-management systems, but there was not time to do a reasonable evaluation of them for this year's conference.)

I join you in thanking the maintainers of the homebrew system for their huge efforts over the past several years. As you say, it was a very nice tool, and I suspect that you and I will not be the only ones missing it a bit.
