FYI: Upcoming events and conferences

Wednesday night, Radiolab's "science cabaret" program, Awe-mageddon, kicks off at 7pm with its first live video webcast, hosted by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich:

"AWE-MAGEDDON" will feature Radiolab's trademark mash-up of world-class scientists, artists, philosophers and generally interesting people sitting down with Jad and Robert to explore the interdisciplinary nature of big ideas. For the first time ever, a Radiolab event can be experienced by audiences around the globe via live video webcast, available at

Their guests will be Iain Couzin, assistant professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, and Ben Rubin, a New York-based media artist.

For scientist-artists, April 23 is the deadline to submit your work to ISMB 2010 (Boston):

ISMB 2010 will bring together scientists from a wide range of disciplines, including biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics. In these fields we are constantly dealing with information in visual form: from microscope images and photographs of gels to scatter plots, network graphs and phylogenetic trees, structural formulae and protein models to flow diagrams, visual aids for problem-solving are omnipresent. Some of the works of the annual exhibitions at the ISMB conferences combine outstanding beauty and aesthetics with deep insight that perfectly proves the validity of our approach or goes beyond the problem's solution. Others were surprising and inspiring through the transition from science to art, opening our eyes and minds to reflect on the work that we are undertaking.

The Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes at Arizona State University invites you to attend The Rightful Place of Science in Arizona May 16-19:

Enjoy more of the things we like about getting together at conferences, and less of the predictable and orchestrated. You will be immersed in a world of rich and generative interaction aimed at fostering ideas, agendas and community at the interfaces of science, technology, politics, media and the arts.
