I'm heading to Montreal on Tuesday for the 20th Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry, and I'm pretty excited!
I have never been to an academic conference before. It's a shame that I missed this one when it was held at Carleton last year, but it was held the week of my wedding, so I suppose I can be forgiven. I hope to learn some new things about computational geometry, of course, but almost as importantly, I want to observe the presentation skills of the speakers. It should also be interesting to see who I talk to about what, and what kind of contacts I'm able to make.
