We hope you had a good time at the Astroinformatics School. Your feedback on the program is very important. As you know, this year we had the support of the ASA, as well as a range of Universities and the CSIRO. We are considering the best way of running this School in the future, and so would like to know which things worked best (and which things were less useful or interesting).
