1. The IPY Oslo 2010 Science Conference: Deadline for Session Proposals

Please note the deadline for session proposals for the IPY Oslo 2010 Science Conference: 24 October 2008.  We heard many potential session ideas in St Petersburg: the need or opportunity for comparisons, integrations, intercalibrations, etc.  Remember the most recent time that you said “What we really need is ...” - now you have an opportunity to propose that as a session!

Please also note the great flexibility available for content and format of a ‘session’.  The organizers invite proposals for workshops, policy debates, screening of films or documentaries, book fairs, art exhibitions and the like. 

Please use this deadline as an opportunity to shape the conference and to inform the organizers of possibilities and plans.  Find more information at:
