I entirely agree. So why not step back and leave the conference thing for 
what it is at this very time ?
We can work collaboratively on all of this online. Having red what I red and 
building upon it I now think we need :

- online collaborative (closed?) (centralised?) workspace(s). This would 
allow teams to work on projects. This would avoid the Uppsala glitch.
- a online meeting room system. voice, video, whiteboard (etc) features. 
This would enable everyone to attend (work) meetings.

Does the PPI has access to this type of infrastructure at this very time?
