Bummer, people.

The Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism has been announced for 2011 and will take place on April 9 and 10 in New York. It’s going to be bigger and better than ever, going from one day to a whole weekend, and it has a killer lineup of speakers.

And I can’t go. Damn you American Association for Cancer Research. If you had scheduled the AACR meeting one week later, I could have done what I did last year and made my meeting trip a two-fer, with a stop off for the NECSS conference first and then concluding with my yearly dose of cancer research updates. Oh, well…

But maybe you aren’t in my situation. Maybe you have the weekend of April 9 and 10 free. Maybe you can make it to New York City that weekend. Think of it as a warm-up for TAM9.

    Agh! I would have loved to have met you. I’m doubling up on the conferences that weekend. The NE Modern Language Assoc. is at Rutgers that week, right across the way, where I am sitting on a panel on science and literature. (My take will be, “Literary scholars, get your science right. You’re making us look bad.”) Then I toodle on over to NECSS for the first time. Secretly, my goal is to make it to TAM. And by secretly, I mean publicly.

    I’ll be at AACR. I have a poster on teleporting oncogenes.

    unfortunately I can’t get to NYC for the skeptics conference, and my work only rarely touches on cancer or cancer research, so I wouldn’t be at the other meeting either.
    But it would be educational and interesting to me to visit both, if time and money permitted.

    Yes, but will either conference feature Lady Science? Because that’s a major selling point:
