What conference did you go to recently and where was it held?
I attended the European Planetary Science Congress (EPSC), an annual meeting of planetary scientists which this year took place at the Technische Universität Berlin from 16th to 21st September.

There were 6 parallel sessions running from Monday to Friday (8:30am till 8pm most days), so it was extremely busy: I estimate there were over 600 talks given, and several hundred posters presented.
