The Grand New Delhi
We had breakfast at the hotel with Laura Haas, Shafi Goldwasser and Amardeep before the ACM meeting. We were a bit late getting to the meeting which had already started. This audience was mainly men as opposed to the day before when it was mostly women. Lunch again was near the stadium. I sat with the head of IBM research India and his predecessor who is now at Xerox India. After the meeting we went back to the hotel and had coffee with Laura at the fancy shopping mall next to the hotel. Then Sant Lal took us to the dinner at the faculty club at IIT. They had no bottled water and flat Pepsi, but good India food and great conversation. Amardeep was elated that Vint Cerf took down a quote from her!
We took folks back to the hotel and then headed back to Amardeep’s in Gurgaon where it was after 11pm.
