Where Are You Traveling From?

Reading some of the posts on the Facebook site, I've seen messages from people coming from the US, Australia, and the UK. My own presentation group has people coming from Canada, India, Singapore, and Mexico. It's exciting to have an opportunity to meet people who are studying in different places and see such diversity in Computing!

With less than a week left until the conference, I'm curious as to where you're traveling from, and wondering who is making the longest journey... who knows, maybe you'll find someone here who is coming from the same place as you, that you didn't know before!

Hey Gail! Nice to see more fellow Canadians! My group will be coming from Vancouver, BC. :)

p.s.: Gail, maybe we can meet up at the conference and talk about our respective groups - I've had a look at your site and I'd love to learn more!

Another person from Indiana here. Ed and I attend the same university (actually, we're roommates), and while we'll be the only DePauw students attending, the two women CS professors in our department will be attending as well!
