Finally I am getting the opportunity to present my work in front of my peers, arguably in the biggest networking conference in size and impact. The slides are ready, the stage is set, and I am hoping I will be able to deliver. Since this is my first presentation in an international conference, I am really excited – may be a bit too much :D I am also looking forward to meeting lots of researchers from all around the world and networking with them for possible collaborations in the future. The fact that I am crossing the equator for the first time, is giving more fuel to my excitement.
Update (April 19): We (Andy and I) are in the confernce site. I am loving Rio :D Hopefully the presentation will go alright on Wednesday.
Update (April 22): Finished presenting my paper :)
