Well, I'm here at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco for the 2005 Guidance, Navigation, and Control Conference. So far I've been impressed with the talks; yesterday I saw some interesting things being done with receding horizon control; wherein optimization is performed over some fixed horizon and the tail of the optimization cost function is estimated with a pre-computed value function.

Also I was happy to see my doctoral advisor here, Randy Beard, and we were able to lunch together yesterday at a delicious little Thai place next to the hotel. I also bumped into my friend Wei Ren, who another of Randy's students, and he's just nailed a professorship at Utah State University -- congratz Wei!
