NSF W8F: Last heave
Thanks to efforts of many, and mainly thanks to those who accepted our invitation to come out and brainstorm (without giving a talk, and with minimal information on what the workshop will be. my sincere thanks to them and this is an IOU, collect when you need it), we are near the beginning of the NSF Workshop on Algorithms In The Field (W8F). The webpage has been updated with the list of attendees, schedule, abstracts, breakout meeting rooms, etc.
We have a limited number of talks. These will frame individual issues, large themes, and set us for our discussions. Check out the abstracts, some truly exciting talks on the menu, from FOCS to Education, right things to cheap wins!
We have a fantastic set of attendees. Now all that remains is to bring an open mind, discuss and find exciting ideas, directions, collaborations. Weather is rainy and promises to be that way M-W. We will be away from grading, teaching and admin (in case of academics) and bosses, quarters, or deliverables (in other cases), so let us have fun, solve some problems, or at least pose them.
