If you liked Sigma Xi last weekend, and if you are in the Triangle on February 8th, and if you are interested in the origin and early evolution of life on Earth (and potentially elsewhere), you will love attending the NESCent symposium on the topic:
The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center invites you to the 2nd annual Darwin Day Symposium. Carol Cleland, Mark Bedau, Janet Siefert, Abigail Allwood, Andrew Roger and Laura Landweber will be talking about their research in early life, generating life and astrobiology. This day-long program is open to the public and will be held at the Sigma Xi Headquarters in Research Triangle. Space is limited so register early! (There is no charge for registration.)
