Are any of y'all going to be in Portland this October? If so, what are you looking forward to seeing, hearing, and/or saying?

I'm one of the co-conveners for the Pardee Keynote "Digital Innovations in the Geosciences" on Sunday afternoon, so needless to say I've been a little focused on that session. There's also a poster session Tuesday morning associated with this. In all honesty I haven't really had time to peruse the rest of the sessions yet.

Callan Bentley has taken the initiative in organizing this year's Geoblogger meetup (http://nvcc.edu/home/cbentley/geoblog/2009/08/geobloggers-get-together-at-gsa.html) - looks like it'll be on Monday evening.

If I haven't emailed you by Friday about your session, bug me.

According to the on-line schedule for your session, two of the scheduled presentations are one minute long. Is that correct?

I'm giving a talk about Patagonian detrital zircons in the Tuesday afternoon convergent margins session

I'm giving a talk w/Anne Jefferson on our survey of women & geo-blogging. (Survey closes today!) That will be Tuesday at 5 pm. As will my undergrad's poster, argh. I'm also scheduled to go to a short course on Saturday afternoon.

I haven't looked at the schedule to think about what else I'm going to be doing. When I was looking at the call for abstracts, I saw a lot of sessions I'm interested in, though. I'm sure I'll be running around with 16 different things planned at any given time. Ack.

I haven't looked into the detailed schedule - am presently signed up for the Scablands Flood field trip pre-meeting, may switch and take a uranium short course post-meeting instead.

I am also presenting Sunday morning on using Geological Movies as a teaching tool but I haven't had time to peruse the other talks. Too busy with school at the moment.
