My personal preference would be to extend it backwards to Friday afternoon/evening rather than forwards to Wednesday

Can I put in a strong vote of support for this on behalf of academics and students? Conference almost always happens at the beginning of freshers' week at Leeds, and indeed at plenty of other HE institutions across the country. That means I can sometimes stay for part of the Monday if I'm lucky and my freshers' week duties are light, but never into the Tuesday, let alone Wednesday - and that's frustrating! Whereas the Friday before is usually fine. We've got a lot of people who study or work in HE in the party, and it would be good to ensure they can attend as much as possible of conference.
