Not an exhaustive list, but since I’m noodling around with my calendar, I might as well note some of the stuff I’ll be doing this year:
- I’ll be on a panel about international science testing at the AAAS Annual Meeting in February. This will be a different experience– not only have I never been to a AAAS meeting before, the whole thing appears to be organized in a different manner than any meeting I have been to. I’m doing a bit of a drive-by for this– coming in Friday afternoon, leaving Sunday evening– but I have classes to teach.
- I’ve been invited to give a Saturday Morning Science lecture at the University of Toledo in mid-March; they don’t seem to have a schedule on the web yet, and the details haven’t been completely nailed down. This’ll be a “What Every Dog Should Know About Quantum Physics” talk, and will take place in our spring break. I’ll post more details when I have them, but if you’re in the northern Ohio/ southern Michigan sort of area and want to see me talk canine physics, watch this space for more details. If you’re at a college or university in that general part of the world, and don’t think Toledo should have all the fun, send me email– if I’m going to be going to Ohio anyway, it might be possible to work in a second stop.
- I’ll be giving a colloquium at St. Mary’s College of Maryland in mid-April; again, this isn’t on the web yet, and I’ll post more details when I have them nailed down. I think this will also be a dog physics talk. And again, if you’re in that general area of the country and would like to hear this or any of the other sorts of talks I do (see the presentations on SlideShare for an idea), send me email. If I’m going to skip out on some classes, anyway, it might be possible to add on to the trip.
- I’ll be at the annual DAMOP meeting, which is freakishly late this year, late enough that it’s after Union’s graduation, which is unprecedented. I’m not currently scheduled to give a talk, though that might change, but I’ll definitely be in Atlanta in mid-June. It’s almost certainly too late in the year for academic talks at other insitutions, but if you’re interested, blah, blah, blah.
That’s my current schedule of out-of-town trips. As you can probably guess from the above, I’m open to going just about anywhere there’s interest, within reason (at some point, if I keep scheduling out-of-town trips either the colleagues who have to cover my classes or Kate who gets stuck with solo toddler wrangling will strangle me). But send me an email, and I’m happy to talk.
