My kids all think I have a really easy life - international travel, 'holidays' all around the world, and they regularly come out with the line 'hard day at the ice-cream factory?' when I say how busy or stressed at work I am. The latest conference we are presenting at does not help, but why oh why do they never hold the conferences I am invited to in somewhere like the Faroe Islands, where the cod fishing is good.
Anyway, we are speaking at Rocky '09, an ISCB conference held in Aspen, CO from 10th to 12th December. It looks a really, really interesting conference. Here is a link to the schedule.
