Is anyone going to this conference, in New Orleans?
I'm going as an invited speaker. Should be fun!

oh man! I'd love to go, but for an unaffiliated guest the tickets are just too expensive :frown:

Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

Isn't it possible that you get invited? PF plays a role in the education of physics students of all levels.

If not, maybe you should get over any initial hesitation and do a little fundraising (via paypal) on the frontpage. I can promise a modest contribution. If many people give a little, it may go pretty quickly and you can be there on the 9th.

Probably not within a week's notice. Maybe the summer meeting?

Personally I would think so, but I haven't received any invite yet :)

Yeah this meeting is too soon, but summer would be great. If you learn of the right contact please let me know. Good luck again!
