Hello all. Last week's workshop at the Technical University of Denmark was a great success. Although most participants came from various parts of Europe a few of us were from North America -- Canada, in my case. I was actually quite impressed with the presentations from DTU, Dublin IT, and U Southern Denmark. All of them seemed to exhibit a depth and breadth and subjectively felt more developed than with most programs in North America. I'd love to hear some comparative comments either from European colleagues or North American (other other region) colleagues who have had a chance to directly experience European programs.
