NAM 2007

In just over a week's time, the UK National Astronomy Meeting (NAM) will be taking place at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston. NAM is a bit like the UK equivalent of a AAS meeting bringing together astronomers from all over the UK as well as a few from overseas. In total there are around 480 people currently registered for the event with over 400 abstracts submitted for talks and posters. Bizarrely, my dad got talking to someone on a plane the other day who turned out to be an astronomer from Hawaii who will be attending NAM. This planet can seem very small sometimes!

Anyway, I'm going to be at NAM for the full four or five days and I'll be trying to do as much live blogging and podcasting as is humanly possibly. If anyone else out there in the blogosphere is going, let me know and I'll make sure I link to you during NAM.
