For the discussion of the sciences. Physics problems, chemistry equations, biology weirdness, it all goes here.

Science Conferences

Postby doogly » Sun Mar 08, 2009 1:49 am UTC

Perhaps other folks here will find be at upcoming science conferences. It would be great to run into some folk!
As for me, in August I will be at the International Congress in Mathematical Physics in Prague, and possibly at Challenges in Theoretical Cosmology. The latter isn't quite my field but my institute is the host.
Anyone else going to these, or any others?

Both of those are a little out of my field, but the only one I have on the schedule at the moment is the American Thoracic Society conference in San Diego this May.

*sigh* I wish. Being only first year I don't have much yet...just started rotations in January. Research is progressing...maybe in a few months I'll have something that can be written up. Right now, we need to get some funding. I'd like to go to Neuro again, that was fun when I went back in '07. I think this one would be fun to go to: The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, May 3-7, 2009, Fort Lauderdale, FL, but that's because I've never been to Florida and some friends moved there last year. :P Well and it would be good too, we use the retina as our model system so I'm sure it would be interesting. I find neat sounding conferences all the time, such as one for people working on drug discovery for treating chronic pain. That one is over in England though, and during exams. Hopefully once I get my name on a paper or two I can get to some!

Mathematical Physics and Cosmology are close but not quite my field. :D

Anyone heading for Marcel Grossmann in Paris? Or possibly Loops09 in Beijing?

The Grossman meeting looks delightful. I need my travel budget doubled.

What the hell is Loops09? Is an entire conference devoted to loop quantum gravity or something?

I went to Sigma Xi national (sci/engineering honor society) in DC last november and had a poster about image analysis programs for bubble nests in fish tanks. I start grad school in the fall, no idea what conferences I will end up at.
Just because it is not physics doesn't mean it is not science.

I will be at the SPS (Society of Physics Students) conference at Boston University at the end of the month, and the CLEO (Conference on Lasers and Electro-optics) in May/June. Anyone else going to be there?

Sadly I wont be at any of the conferences previously mentioned.

In short, yes. These have been going on for a number of years.

MG12 should be great, yeah, I hear you about travel budget, luckily Paris is kind of close, so this is the cheap one this year :)

Anyone for the general relativity and gravity conference in Mexico City, gr19?
My talk was just accepted for the curved space qft parallel session, it is super exciting.

I went to ISSCC once (no... I had no poster to present...) because I worked in a circuit group, though I have somewhat migrated to devices and MEMS type stuff. A bunch of my current labmates have gone to Hilton Head.

Being a chemist I won't go to the majority of the conferences listed ever. But I have been to Pittcon, had an abstract accepted for an Oral presentation at the Southeast Meeting of the ACS but due to a last minute occurrence could not attend. I will give an Oral presentation at Pittcon next year and we are hosting the Southeast undergraduate research conference next year so I will be at that again, giving the same presentation I gave at pittcon.
