I was at Long Beach, CA for ICML / CVPR 2019, and, two things:

  • the moment I needed to pack for ICML I realized I never unpacked for ICLR.
  • I had to switch among 3 hotels for a 4-day stay, and one of them almost ended up in Santa Monica; everywhere is booked up!

Noting them here to see if future years will be the same / worse.
