I had a great experience presenting my work at IUI 2016. I had the opportunity to meet very smart individuals and am looking forward to collaborating with some of them. The demo session went very smoothly and I had the opportunity to demonstrate my work to a lot of people and receive suggestions and critiques. On the volunteering side, I had an ever richer experience since it was much more involved. Not only was it a good professional experience to make contacts with a lot of colleagues, but I also had a great time socializing outside the conference. I am already looking forward to the next IUI.
