Assuming I'm approved by my employer to attend, I could benefit from
either the intro or some of the advanced topics. If the mayavi one is
for hard core mayavi users, I would probably spend the day doing the
intro one. If there are examples that can be followed without being a
mayavi wizard, I would probably attend that one. Either way I see it
as a win.
Thanks for your efforts in getting the conference together.
