In a couple of weeks I’m off to The Young(-ish!) Giants of Chemistry, a conference – and related fancy dinners – to celebrate the 65th birthday of Sir Fraser Stoddart. There’s a pretty good line up of speakers – it’s a combination of former students and postdocs, colleagues both past and present, as well as a selection of prominent researchers who are at least a generation younger than Fraser. There will also be a couple of poster sessions.
It’s short notice, but Edinburgh in June is quite nice (so I am told), and there is some space left, so if you would like to come, check out the contact page on the conference website. For those of you who won’t be able to make it, I’ll probably find some time to blog from the meeting – with perhaps a few guest entries, and our next chemistry podcast will also include some content from the event.
