The conference was overseen by our godfather, Ken Schwartz, who gave us valuable feedback on the papers that were presented. After each presentation session Ken provided the delegates with a short summary thereof. Offering not only technical inputs and asking thought-provoking questions, he provided us with numerous interesting titbits of his time spent studying and practising with the greats of our industry, such as Professors Jere Jennings, Geoff Blight, Ken Knight and Tony Brink, to name a few. In so doing he challenged us as young engineers in many ways about our future and the future of our profession. We are very thankful to him, his wife Marion and son David for attending, and the time and hard work he put into making this venture a great success.
