It is my great pleasure to be writing this short personal reflection of the 5th ERSA Winter Seminar of Regional Science which took place from 11th to 14th March 2015. Since this was my first Winter Seminar ever, I really had not known before what to expect. Of course, being a social scientist, I carried out vigorous investigation and both quantitative and qualitative analysis prior to the event. This was to be later compared with my personal observation and collection of data. All people from the representative sample whom I asked to comment and reveal some intriguing facts about the seminar said that it is a rather smaller but nevertheless an interesting event with a cosy atmosphere in the field of regional science. Even the official mission statement said that the main objective is to bring creative academic debate on current issues of regional science and practice of regional policy in an attractive environment and relaxed atmosphere. So let me briefly go over the event and provide some hard evidence to either confirm or refute this rather challenging hypothesis.
