Ideally, we should host this in a University,
That would be a good idea, but guess there must be some event running along
as the hotel that we

Nop, have no visa :D

would be nice

would be excelent

well some city with no beach and university..... Mexico City?
Which probably means "Do your conference in Boston, in mid
> February" to guarantee attendance ;-).
No way :P
