Science Blogging Conference – who is coming? (Local scientists 2)

2008NCSBClogo200.pngThere are 47 days until the Science Blogging Conference. The wiki is looking good, the Program is shaping up nicely, and there is more and more blog and media coverage already. The anthology should be published in time for the event. There are already 161 registered participants and if you do not register soon, it may be too late once you decide to do so (we’ll cap at about 200). Between now and the conference, I am highlighting some of the people who will be there, for you to meet in person if you register in time.
Tyra Dunn-Thomas is a recent PhD from the Iowa State University program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology and is now a postdoc at UNC in the department of Dental Research.
Kamana Singh is a Microbiology graduate student at North Carolina State University.
In order to meet him, you know what you have to do: register! Registration is free. Check the map for nearby hotels. And sign up for the Friday dinner.
If you are coming, find hotel information, exchange information about where you are staying, if you are offering a ride, need a ride, or want to carpool on the Ride Board – just edit the wiki page and add the query or information.
Our Friday lab tours are now in place, so you can start signing up to join one of them.
Get updates and get in touch with other participants via our Facebook Event group (I see that some who originally responded “Maybe attending” are now registered).
Please use ‘scienceblogging.com’ as your tag when writing blog posts about it or uploading pictures. You can also download and print out the flyers (PDF1 and PDF2) and post them on bulletin boards at your office, lab or school.
