Is any one going to the CIAC conferance in Tasmania in 2006?
I'm planning to, if I can save enough money! Plus my supervisors tell me I have to prsent a paper.....AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!
I'm planning on going, I'm trying to put something togeather if I have time, to present or make a poster. The reason I'm asking is to save money I was seeing if anyone wanted to share a room and car.
More details on the conference please
I'm in Melbourne and as Tasmania is just a short boat ride across some rough sea, I might go to have a sticky beak! I could be driver for several people (if someone else can navigate!). The last time I went to Tasmania I was 10, which was quite a while ago...
Well I'm in NZ! so i'll have to fly! Prob to Melbourne then Hobart. I'll most likely try for a backpackers!
You mean they want you to present but they're not paying for you to go???
I love geology
That would be right! But I'm applying for money from the NZ Marine Sciences Society! Keep fingers crossed for me!
Got the grant...............bought my air ticket today CIAC here I come!!! YAY only 121 more sleeps!!!!!!
.... that's 121 days to raise funds for ... 1, 2, 3, 4 ... 5 people. Oh dear.
Bit of an AUT contingent going Jean: me, Kat, Jason, Felipe & Emma.
Emma and Felipe are talking
... and Jason is talking squid
We've gone some really cool smilies you know! Perhaps I'd best post pics of the ladies and gents that'll be participating next year. Could have some fun I could ... for a change!
Have you heard if you're actually talking? I haven't and when I checked the website yesterday it said it would take a few more days! Hmmmm maybe I'l scoot over and have another wee look! I'm hoping to be talking Nototodarus (we need a smilie for that!). Also attending the Southern Ocean cephs workshop should be interesting!
Well it'll be great to meet the new people (Jean and co.) and see the old people (Steve, et al), not that I mean you're old...ummm....yeah.
Fun though anyways! Nice break from school, one heck of a flight though (Halifax to Hobart, thats 1...2...3...4....x... hours...). Definitely looking forward to it though if all things work out. See you there!
Nope, don't know yet... just have to assume the worst at this stage.
Certainly wish I could be there (if they'd even let me in ). Have fun, ambassadors of TONMO.com!
Course they would Tony! Wish you caould be there too!
and Kat yes I'm assuming the worst too, got my talk halfway ready (that way if I have to change to poster I have the pics etc all ready to go!!)
Will those of you presenting put up your pictures accompanying your talks or posters on TONMO? Please?
Will do although at this stage most of mine are drawings and graphs.
Main_board Halifax to Hobart Wow.....that's some distance! Christchurch to Melbourne is about 3 hours then a wee wait of about 2-3 hours before the flight to Hobart.
Was going to leave from Dunedin but that was going to be nearly $500 more........can't quite figure out why, so have a four hour bus trip to Christchurch first, still 'tis extra time to memorise my talk and to get stressed out!!!!
Well, finally registered for the conference! And not a day too soon either for that early cut off of Nov. 1. Feels soooooo good, I'm just soooo excited!
See ya there, just heard I'm talking apparently same talk in 2 different sessions !!!! Aint gonna happen 1 is quite enough!!!!!!!!! Sent my registration off a few weeks ago with a big fat cheque (don't have a credit card .......waaaaaaaaaaaay too dangerous!!!)
