Well, SPCOM 2012 is over now — it was a lot of fun and a really nice-sized conference. I missed the first day of tutorials, which I heard were fantastic. Qing Zhao couldn’t make it due to visa issues but gave her tutorial over Skype. Hooray for technology!
After a fun trip to Mysore this weekend, I have landed at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore (Bengaluru for those more PC), for SPCOM 2012. This is a 4 day conference (yesterday was tutorials) that has been held 8 times before (sometimes skipping years) here at IISc. I’ve never visited here before, but my father, grandfather, and great grandfather are all graduates, so it feels pretty special to finally see the place. My talk is dead last, so we’ll see how many people are still here by the time it rolls around.
