Post PLDI 2016

Hello all,

I wanted to first thank all the organizers for putting on this year's conference. It was really easy to work with you as a student volunteer and you were very helpful when things went awry.

I had a lot of fun at this conference, and I really enjoyed all the talks I went to. My favorite talks were "Input Responsiveness: Using Canary Inputs to Dynamically Steer Approximation" and "Stratified Synthesis: Automatically Learning the x86-64 Instruction Set", and I also enjoyed both of the keynotes.

I also thought the student volunteer dinner was a really great opportunity to get to know other students working in the same field. I had interesting conversations throughout the conference with new people that I met along the way.

Thanks again to everyone and I hope to see you again next year!
