Last night I completed the First Circular for the DigitalFossil 2012 conference. Before it goes public it will go through the capable hands of my co-convener Daniela Schwarz-Wings, so no link here yet.
But I can summarize a few facts and numbers:
For DigitalFossil 2012 (website) nearly 50 talks were submitted, that’s 20 more than we had hoped for. Additionally, there were a bunch of interesting workshop suggestions, so that the schedule now is packed to bursting! Obviously, some people won’t be able to make it, but even if the real numbers in the end are 39 talks and 5 workshops, that’s a LOT for three days. It will be a very intense conference!
Those of you having submitted a talk title, please remember that the abstract text is due end of July. You’d make me very happy with an early submission, though, as I will be away much of August.
Anyone who wishes to come and attend without giving a talk is also welcome! DigitalFossil 2012 will be a great opportunity to learn about digitizing fossils and comparable specimens!
