It's holiday season every season with pretty much every academic pursuit. We're very lucky being ale to escape to some wonderful places to discuss the work we do and face-to-face really is the best way. Sometimes choosing which conference to go to can be a real headache.
AllSeq make this a little easier by presenting a pretty comprehensive list of meetings all over the world in their knowledgbank. And get you a discount too!
The list covers meetings in USA (Boston to Nashville and almost anywhere in California), the UK, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Russia, India, Singapore, China and Australia. Take a look and plan that round the world trip. With prices like those available at STA travel (see below) you'd be crazy not to go! And you could just recycle that one poster/talk, not that any of us have ever done that!
Just don't try to pretend those trees planted by BA or American are going to offset the 11 tons of CO2 you generate flying the Bula loop!
