Back from ANTEC and trying to get caught up, so this will be a quick post with more to follow tomorrow and Friday.
Based on previous conferences, attendance seemed down at the exhibit hall and the talks. My talk went well (I thought) but I was hoping for quite a larger group of attendees. Regardless, I am most grateful to those who sat through my talk.
Because of a flight delay (the plane kept flying south to avoid thunderstorms in the area - any further south and the Cuban Air Force would have been on us), I got pulled into setting up my company's booth and didn't get to sit in as many talks as I was hoping for.
I did find a few exciting items in the exhibit hall and I will talk at greater length about them later this week. I was struck by how many publishers were there: Elsevier, Wiley, RARA, CRC... Somewhat strange if you ask me.
