I’ve mentioned before that I’m going to be giving an invited talk in the LaserFest session at the APS March Meeting. I finally got around to registering for the meeting, and booking my travel. $1,500 on the college credit card– whee!
The March Meeting program is one of the more intimidating meeting programs I’ve ever seen– there are 42 parallel sessions in every time block. Yikes. I thought DAMOP was getting to be a little too big to navigate, but this is ridiculous…
Speaking of DAMOP, I’ll also be going to the 2010 DAMOP Meeting in Houston. I haven’t booked my travel for that, yet, because it’s still months out, but I did submit an abstract this morning on behalf of my thesis student this year, who’s done great work, and earned a trip to a conference. I may be going out-of-pocket on that one, because the March Meeting eats my faculty travel allowance for the year, but I’ll look at the funding situation later.
So, anyway, if you’re going to be at one or both of those, I’ll be there. I’ll also look into setting up book promo stuff, for those who don’t feel like paying $300+ in conference fees. And if you have any great advice to offer about things to do or see in Portland in March or Houston in May, let me know.
