NGS citation

More for fun and giggles, but when citing a talk from this years NGS conference, what's the location? I'm citing Judy's talk on the Breaker Boys and Spinner girls and technically we never were in Salt Lake :) 

So Salt Lake, virtual, online, or ...


PS I'm sure it's Salt Lake as that's what all the documents say, but it does bring up an interesting point as it was a very different conference.

Cryptoref, have you seen EE 12.91?  As for the location: as with any other field of a citation, if the field's not needed, it's not used.

I was trying to be a bit tongue in cheek. I was using 12.47, which has a direct reference for an NGS presentation. One of the lessons learned for me is the need to really identify what you are referring to and how you got access to the evidence. So being somewhat silly, i was asking about the 12.47 reference to the location, when Judy wasn't in Salt Lake and I wasn't in Salt Lake.

I'd put Salt Lake in the citation as that's what syllabus includes. 

It was just my warped sense of humor.

An inquiring mind and a sense of humor: two essentials for the researcher and you have them both.
