Patterned after the highly successful closing plenary of ICNC 2019, the closing plenary of NCSD 2022 will provide a forum for each of the leaders of the 10 different technical tracks to present an overview of the papers discussed in their sessions share any emerging issues or themes with the broader NCS community. Each track representative will give a 5-10 minute highlight discussion. The meeting will be closed with preview presentation on ICNC 2023, which will be held in October of 2023 in Sendai, Japan.
