Hi all,

Starting this new thread here as a way to collect information about upcoming presentations on ceph research at international conferences, instead of having an individual thread for every new meeting. Feel free to post links to abstracts to inform others that may be interested. By having the links here, this thread will also serve as a directory of researchers and their work.

Suggestions and comments always appreciated!

S.

I am going to this. AWESOME. Can we have a TONMO mini-con at the Fiorito presentation on Saturday?
In a time machine? Probably a good idea to quote the title in case someone slips in an entry (or two) before your post :grin:

If you do, Taollan, please post a summary. I have never been to an outside conference on cephs and would be curious about what is discussed.

Not sure whether this is in the intended vein of the thread, but I'll be talking about giant squid on NZ's Radio Live at 12.30pm (local time) this Sunday (5.30pm Saturday in the US Midwest/6.30pm East Coast). Anyone who wants to stream it should be able to here. Probable topics include the Nat Geo documentary Hunt for the Giant Squid and AUT's plastinated GS (currently on display at Auckland Museum as part of the Poisoners Exhibition). I'll also be giving two talks there next week, as part of this lecture series, in case there are any Auckland locals on here -- 11am Wednesday 22nd and 2pm Saturday 25th. Will point people this way for more information on cephs, of course :wink:

Sounds cool, will any of the talks be recorded? Since the one on the radio will be streamed online, it would be great to have it stored for anyone who can't hear it live.
