Enough with the conferences!

I returned from a Canadian conference had barely a day and a weekend to recover from jet-lag before the kickoff of IVESC in London. IVESC ended on Wednesday, Thursday was a mad rush to arrange stuff before the Boss heads off to India for the rest of the month.  Friday was a one-day meeting elsewhere in London, I only made half of this due to the Great British Beer Festival attendance the night before.

No more conferences this month, please!

Some notes:

  • Alcohol – the USA and Canada issue drink tickets at conferences. The UK issues bottles and cans (especially at poster sessions).
  • Apple Macs (all sorts) and Asus Eee PCs seem to be the favourites with scientific conference delegates.
  • You can really only get a decent cup of Tea in the UK.

Oh look. Another conference I’ll be at. Not until November though.
