STOC 2009, Feedback
The conference is over. I thought it would be useful to provide a thread for feedback on the conference. The point here is, in my mind, to offer feedback that might be useful to the next Program Chair (Leonard Schulman) and/or possibly the next Local Arrangements team. Did you like the mix of papers? Were there enough conceptual/technical papers? Was the schedule reasonable? How were the talks? There could be more institutional memory in our conference processes; perhaps this can add some. Or discuss some of the previously raised issues from this blog I brought up at the business meeting (slides). Or just to say you enjoyed it or hated it. In order to avoid this becoming a "discussion" with me, I don't plan on commenting on comments, so now is a good time to say what you think -- although do keep in mind constructive criticism is significantly more helpful than criticism.
