I’ve given the conference a whole page as there were so many fascinating presentations. The conference website has all the proceedings: papers, abstracts, slides, etc., so my write-up is just some of my personal observations. There were two tracks, so I didn’t hear every presentation.
I would like to thank everyone who looked at my poster and for all your support and kind comments.
