ASSETS'22 in Athens, Greece

We just completed the first-ever hybrid ASSETS with over 300 participants (virtual and in-person) for which I (Jon Froehlich) was General Chair. I'm so grateful to the record-breaking number of organizing committee members and student volunteers who tirelessly planned the conference for more than a year.

Though we are always improving as a community, I am particularly proud of starting a new workshop track this year (led by Kyle Montague and Sowmya Somanath), of creating an inclusive, accessibility-first hybrid experience (led by Christian Vogler with incredible assistance from Kelly Mack, Emma McDonnell, and Laurianne Sitbon), of hosting both Haben Girma and Clatyon Lewis for fantastic keynotes, of initiating new efforts for outreach centered on global participation and increased involvement of educators, particularly for non-R1 institutions, and in celebrating our time together in historic Athens with incredible on-site activities.
