To those making their posters for Fungal Genetics meeting, we salute you. Get those 3’10″ x 3’10″ works of art printed & ready to impress the 900 colleagues who will be at the conference. I’ll try and count the distribution of fabric posters vs the big prints vs the hand-made 8×11 sheets. I think I’ll also be giving unofficial awards for best non-boring Venn Diagram (think outside the banana) or other memorable data viz. The abstract book should be released soon and I hope to get a Wordle up like from years past. I’m curious to see what topics are trending and if it belies how the fields are changing to address areas in biofuels, use of next gen sequencing, or other areas.
The twitter hashtag is #FUNGAL2013 so get your clients ready.
