ASSETS 2014 in Rochester, NY

This year I was a faculty panelist at the ACM ASSETS DC. I must say that the quality of these submissions have been going up and up in comparison to the main conference. Indeed, in some case the work and it’s vision seems better than some of the main programme. Of course these are often not fully mature or fully developed, and there is always the temptation to start to work towards publications every year such that the work becomes, in some way, less than he whole.

But this said, very impressed by both the students and the work, and of course kudos to their supervisors.

Thanks also must go to Heidi and Claude who arranged such a great panel.
