LCA2009 Talk Picks

Now that the complete schedule for LCA (Including miniconfs) is available, I’ve chosen what talks I can go to. I’m quite impressed, almost every session for the entire conference has something that’s caught my eye, and so I only have one or two slots left to fill per day. Currently, my selections stand as such:
