I have been observing these discussions with great interest and have tried to not comment on a point by point basis.

But Sig's question is something I would like to comment on.

One of the things that the EB responsible for the conference is looking into is moving the Proceedings to so presenters can upload new versions of their presentations - for reasons like what Sig notes below. We would also like to support allowing users to create pages that reference their presentations (e.g., ones that are given repeatedly for example) where they could provide links to the various PDFs (e.g., presented at different conferences) as well as (at their option) their PowerPoints, sample code, data, etc.

My site ( is by design not a SAS community site. The proceedings part is simply a user interface to SAS conference proceedings (partly hosted by me), mashed up with Google search. I like to keep it that simple. A thing that I have been thinking about adding is that authors could add Powerpoints, codes, ... I have not found a good way of doing this yet, other then solliciting for it on SAS-L (which hardly gives any response).
