Finding a Future for Scientific Conferences

November 29, 2020

Just registered for the upcoming American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting – aka Burning Man for Scientists – which normally takes place the second week of December, in San Francisco, but this year will be a virtual event spread over 2 weeks or so.

Just reviewing some video from last year’s AGU, which might be the last of it’s kind, if the vitual format grows. I do believe individual contacts in the flesh can be invaluable, so pretty sure there will always be conferences in real space, but change is afoot.

Above, clip from my convo with Macarthur Genius and Paleo Oceanographer Andrea Dutton, December 2019.
