ZooCon Oxford is Tomorrow!

After a very busy week, I’ve suddenly had the happy realization that ZooCon ’13 (in Oxford) is tomorrow.

Okay, it’s not like I had completely forgotten about it – I’ve been thinking about what I want to say in my talk and discussing the schedule with the other organizers for a while now – but what a lovely feeling to suddenly connect that the thing you’ve been looking forward to as an opportunity to meet some interesting people and talk about interesting stuff is less than 24 hours away!

There’s still time to register: just go to the Eventbrite page and sign up (it’s free!) and we’ll see you tomorrow.

I’m planning to talk mostly about the future of Galaxy Zoo, including CANDELS and other projects as well as interesting new tools to enable different kinds of collaborative science, including volunteer-led science. But I’m most looking forward to the other talks, which will include updates from Old Weather, Space Warps and Planet Four.

What are you most looking forward to?

(Besides the pub afterwards, of course!)

    It’s wonderful that there’s a ZooCon ’13! I am very envious of the zooites who will be able to attend.

    What am I most looking forward to? Even though there’s zero chance I could be there, I’m most looking forward to Down Under zooites having the opportunity to attend something similar in Sydney (Australia) later in the year.

    I love to hear the outcome of the conference on the FHB/CANDELS galaxies that my tag helped to speed up the process of classifying them along with toofainttoclassify. Thank you. I so glad my tag helped out science. I feeling excited!!! 🙂
