I was browsing, compiling potential travel dates and noticed: Sigcomm in Seattle overlaps Dagstuhl workshop on Sublinear Algorithms, and KDD in Las Vegas overlaps with VLDB in New Zealand. I am reminded of the mathematician (resp engineer) who liked having a wife and a mistress so he could tell each he was with the other, and spend time in his office working on puzzles (resp. coding).

I was browsing through some backlog of papers and noticed: it seems customary for papers on ad auctions to say something like, "the sponsored search industry is YY billion dollars a year, see earnings of companies M, Y, G, etc." This is specious argument by association. Let us please stop.

I think sigcomm and podc also overlap.
This and vldb-kdd overlaps are unfortunate.

PODC Aug 18--21 at Toronto overlaps with SIGCOMM 17--22 at Seattle, and indeed that is unfortunate. -- metoo.
