The IVLA 2022 Conference is just a week ahead. I am so grateful to the whole local organizing team – I would not be able to make it without Terhi Paakkinen, Judit Hahn, Rasa Zakeviciute and Anne Pitkänen-Huhta. I have learnt a lot during this time, both the good and the bad about organizing a conference. I hope that the attendees, both onsite and online, will enjoy the event and get as much as possible from it.
