It’s been a crazy few months of travel for me, with conferences so far in Slovenia, Barcelona and Colorado. But while Coventry may not match these destinations for exoticism or glamour, I’m really looking forward to the upcoming BSDB meeting, starting on Sunday at Warwick University. It’s got a fantastic line-up of speakers, and it’ll be great to get the chance to catch up with much of the local developmental biology community. The Company of Biologists will have a stand there, so if you’re coming too, please drop by and say hi. I’ll be there over lunchtime on Tuesday, as will the Editors in Chief of Journal of Cell Science and Biology Open: Michael Way and Jordan Raff. You’ll also see Eva (the face behind the Node) at the end of the Graduate Symposium session on Tuesday, and I’m sure we’ll both be hanging around the coffee urns during the breaks and the bar in the evening!
For those of you who won’t be there, the Node will – as in previous years – be bringing you reports from the meeting, so you can join us virtually (albeit retrospectively) for what promises to be an exciting and stimulating conference.
