Event wrap up: General Assembly

The General Assembly was very well attended and proved to be a great success, as previous years. We had the visit of Måns Lönnroth and Anders Brannstrom from VREF who showed their satisfaction with the work shown and the progress reached. We also had several advisors and key invited people to the Assembly, as Lake Sagaris, Sam Zimmermann, Gerhard Menckhoff, Fernando Páez, Federico Van Buchwald and Brendan Finn. We had several students, CoE researchers and EMBARQ staff actively participating. The feedback received was very useful and will be considered as input for research in following years.
