Early bird registration for Canadian Science Policy Conference


Just a very short note to highlight the upcoming Canadian Science Policy Conference and point out that today (October 3, 2010) is the last day of early bird registration.

This conference landed on the map last year and is a total “must attend” for those interested in “science for policy” and “policy for science” type questions with its unique blend of government officials, biotech leaders, and academics all together in one room.  It promises to be another excellent event with ket guest speakers including Liberal science critic Marc Garneau, McGill president Heather Munroe-Blum, SSHRC president Chad Gaffield, and CFI president Gilles Patry.

This is one of those times I wish I was still in Canada, but I suspect it will still be going strong for many years after last years wonderful reviews and the great line-up this year.  Best of luck for a great event Mehrdad, Jeff and everyone else who is part of the organizing!
