If thought-provoking sessions are the bricks of ScienceOnline2012, then the mortar is the in-between time that holds it all together. So much happens in the hallways, in the evenings, during breaks, on tours, or over drinks.
In fact, those times are just as integral to the success of ScienceOnline2012 as anything else.
We take a lot of time (and input from you!) to make sure that the program’s schedule of sessions is the most interesting and productive that it can be. We want to do the same with the in-between time.
Last year, we had a successful Open Mic night and we’d like to make room for that to happen again. With our new venue, we have space for art exhibits, coffeehouse areas, and more. We have ideas percolating (anyone up for some Science of Beer or Science of Wine?), but we’d also like to hear from you. Leave your suggestions in the comments below.
With a little collaboration, I’m sure we can make the bricks and mortar of ScienceOnline2012 even better this year!
