Although it may be old news for anyone following the #ICHG2011 twitter feed, I figure there are still some people out there that might be interested in seeing my summary slides that I'll be presenting at a Bioinformatics Core group meeting to discuss what I learned at the conference (those slides are available here).
Generally speaking, I was very pleased with the number and variety of great speakers. Plus, there were fun activities like a circus performance to open the conference and complementary poutine for lunch a couple days. I kind of wish the conference was a day or two shorter and there were more activities / discussions to encourage networking among smaller groups of the attendees, but I think these are only minor concerns.
Overall, I would consider the conference to be a great success, and I am seriously considering attending next year in San Francisco!
