MiT5 has TEN parallel sessions!
A tentative agenda is finally up for MiT5, and it has more parallel sessions than any conference I’ve ever been to. I mean, I know that the MLA and SIGGRAPH and such have 20,000 attendees, but I’ve always avoided them. I wonder what it’ll be like? Back in 1999 I was at a conference with two hundred or so attendees and nine parallel sessions (everyone attending presented), and quite a few of the sessions only had two or three people in the audience. Oh well, at least there’ll be lots of interesting people and some entertainment in trying to figure out which of ten interesting panels to attend.
That means my unofficial blogosphere version of the program only covers about a tenth of what’s going on. Yikes.
