The main IJCAI2019 conference started on August 13th. The organizers gave the opening remarks and statistics, and announced the award winners for this year. I was last here 22 years ago, and it's nice to be back. Over the next 2-3 days I'm hoping to post a few links and descriptions of the exciting search work my students and colleagues will be presenting here. Super proud that our paper got distinguished paper honorable mention today @IJCAIconf #ijcai2019 .
