For many of us, this year's TRB kicked off in a primarily social vein, at the Exhibit Hall opening and reception. Sunday has workshops but is also the grace period when we all take a moment to find familiar faces, make introductions, maybe sample a few appetizers.
Some facts about this year's TRB:
- As of Friday, January 6th 13,722 people had registered for the annual meeting. This is 5% over last year's record attendance at the same point in time.
- 5,900 papers were reviewed
- There are 800+ workshops and sessions (another record)
Looking forward to diving in!
