No Holds Barred Opinion Session
Moderator: Suman Banerjee (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Immediately following the welcome reception, we will carry on the true and tried tradition of using drinks as an excuse to say whatever is on our minds regarding SIGMOBILE, it’s conferences and workshops, the state of research, societal issues, etc. Speakers will have 5 minutes to express their outrageous (or not-so-outrageous) opinion and the audience will pick the winner through applause and vocal support.
