I’m busy this week with Amplitudes 2021. Being behind the “organizer’s desk” for one of these conferences is an entirely different experience. There’s a lot to keep track of, keeping the Zoom going smoothly, the website up to date, and the YouTube stream running. Luckily we have good help, a team of students handling a lot of the more finicky details. I think we’ve been putting on a good conference, but there are definitely lessons I’ve learned for the next time I host something.
The content has been interesting too of course, and despite being busy I’ve still gotten to watch the talks. I’ll say more about this after the conference, there have been quite a few interesting developments in the past year.
