ISIT 2009 : post the first

I’m at ISIT 2009 now at the COEX Center. Korea is pretty good so far (pictures to be posted later). The conference started today with a plenary by Rich Baraniuk, who talked about compressed sensing. I’d seen parts of the talk before, but it’s always nice to hear Rich speak because he’s so passionate about how cool the thing is.

I’ll try to blog about talks that I saw that were interesting as time permits — this time I’ll try to reduce the delay between talks and posts!
