This was my first time attending ASPLOS. Overall it was a great experience. The organization, the quality of the presentations, the food and the view of SLC were all great. Sadly I missed the excursion :(
I was excited by the broadness of the topics and enjoyed the chance to speak with researcher from both industry and academia. As to the sessions, I think the lightning session was a great idea, it really helped me decide which session to go. The debate panel session was also inspiring and insightful. Among the main sessions, I enjoyed most the heterogeneous computing session the virtualization session. And every other sessions have one or more interesting papers.
I'm looking forward to attending ASPLOS'15 in Istanbul!
