Today is the first day of the SDB meeting in Albuquerque. The program looks amazing, and I’m looking forward to many of the talks. The meeting is held jointly with the Japanese Society for Developmental Biologists, so many of the attendees came all the way from Japan.
Development and the Node are here in Albuquerque as well. You can find us at the Company of Biologists booth as well as in the audience at the talks.
We hope to summarize the meeting on the Node afterward, but could use some help, because try as we might, we can’t be everywhere at once! So if you’re at the SDB meeting, and would like to help us out by summarizing part of the event for the readers of the Node, please get in touch. You can leave a comment here, send an email, or track me down in person. We ask, at this particular meeting, that you get in touch before writing, because we’ve agreed with the conference organizers to write a report the “old fashioned way” on the Node – meaning that speakers’ permission will be asked before posting the report. If you want to write something, please do let us know and we’ll contact the speakers for you.
Here are some reports from previous society meetings on the Node:
– BSDB/BSCB meeting part I, part II, part III
– SFBD/JSDB meeting
– ISSCR meeting

I’m looking forward to an interesting meeting, and hope to see some of you here!
