The Heme-finder: Where I'll be during SAS Global Forum

1

I'm sorry to say that there will be no "Dummies around Me" smart phone app for SAS Global Forum this year. That means that if you want to catch up with me, you'll have to do it the old-fashioned way: plan to be in the same place that I am, at the same time that I'm there.

Rick Wicklin made this easy for his extended network by publishing his schedule. I'll do the same here. Bonus: if you're looking to avoid me, this schedule will show you what times I'll be occupied and therefore unavailable for chance encounters.

As you can see, I plan to be plenty busy. Highlights for me include the Closing Session, of course, where I'll deliver the keynote talk. (Keynote is conference-speak for "nobody told me what to say, so I still have to make that part up.")

I'm also very excited to host the SAS Tech Talk sessions, which will feature cool demos and conversation from some terrific SAS R&D personnel. And because these will be part of "SAS Global Forum Live", you can participate even if you can't attend in person!
