Highlight: Doctoral Consortium + Poster session
I agree with Mykel, the doctoral consortium was also one of the highlights for me this year at AAAI! It provided a great forum of top researchers and current Ph.D. students to present, discuss and exchange research ideas! I was an unique opportunity, were the students were able to get feedback in a save environment. I learned a lot about how to give my talk for the next time and got valuable input. One nice side effect was that it increased a lot the number of people I knew at the conference and I made many new contacts through the new friends from the AAAI DC. I would like to thank Kiri and all the other people on the panel for their hard work and time. I was a great experience. I would have more contributed to the blog, but the connection at Duquesne University was not existing and the wireless of my laptop didn't work, so I could use it at the Westin. I also enjoyed the poster session a lot, since I had many great talks and discussion with other researchers which resulted in new ideas! Thanks again!
