ISSCR meeting in Toronto – keeping up via Twitter

Posted by , on 15 June 2011

I’m currently in Toronto for the annual meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), and you can expect to find updates about the meeting at various places. Of course we’ll cover it here on the Node itself, but we’re also using Twitter to share and follow news from the meeting.

The ISSCR meeting has a wonderful media policy, where the embargoes end at the start of each talk, so you can write about them as they happen, and the meeting organisers actively encourage blogging and tweeting. There is an official “Twitter hashtag” for the meeting which you can use to follow along with updates from people who are at the meeting. (That even works if you don’t use Twitter yourself, so don’t worry if you’re not an active social media user.)

This is a link to a list of tweets from people writing about the ISSCR meeting:
all recent tweets tagged #ISSCR2011. (Newest ones are on top.)

I will be using both the Node’s and Development‘s Twitter accounts to post updates as appropriate. You can find those here:

And finally, for the official word on the meeting, the ISSCR has its own Twitter account.
