Later this month, I'll be attending the 59th Meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany. The list of Nobel Laureates (about 20 of them) and the list of about 600 young researchers from 66 countries are very impressive. Of course, not being a chemist, I'll have to do some homework before I go, learning what these people did to get the prizes.
The program certainly looks interesting - there is a lot of "meta" stuff beyond pure chemistry, so I will always find interesting sessions to attend and blog from. Yes, I am going to be there as a blog-reporter. I understand that PZ will also be there in the same capacity.
The meeting is from June 28th to July 3rd, after which I'll fly to Belgrade for a few days, to visit my Mom and meet some friends (especially those I missed last year). Ana, Vedran and some others are already trying to organize for me to give lectures and interviews while there.
If you'll be either at the Lindau meeting or in Belgrade at the above dates, let me know. I'll be flying through London, but will not have much or any time to stop and do any socializing there this time around.
what trains do i take from DeGaulle airport to Trier Germany
No idea. I don't live in Europe.
BTW, while in Lindau, I will also be on a panel about Open Access:
"Beatrice Lugger, German science journalist (and founder of Scienceblogs.de), will moderate this panel. Further are: Nobel Laureates Aaron Chiechanover and Sir Kroto, Bora Zivkovic of PLoS, and Dr Jason Wilde, publisher for the physical sciences at Nature Publishing Group."
