This is not the first time I write about ASPO here at ET and in any case there are links for the conference website that explain what it is about. It would be a bit boring defining the thing every time I write about it. Those that do not know anything about ASPO are encouraged to follow the links to the national organisations.
I acknowledge your reflection on interconnectedness between long term and short term thinking. But whereas this is obvious for Germany, perhaps not any more for Spain or Portugal.
Vencit omnia veritas.
I didn't mean that you should attempt to include a history of the organisation - a link back to a diary/website that does this would be more appropriate.
You have one paragraph to draw in the uniformed/uncommitted reader. You used it to refer to an acronym many people don't know; about a conference most people have never heard of and which was such a failure it might never happen again; to complain you'd been asked to write a summary you didn't want to write; and had only done so because you were bored at the airport. Not the sort of opening paragraph that presages a best-selling must read story!

I'm changing the first sentence as you suggest, it really doesn't hurt.
Vencit omnia veritas.
