Today my life is complete chaos as I try and get things together for the OSA Annual Meeting, aka Frontiers in Optics 2009. Wouldn’t you know it, today is the day that suddenly a dozen extra meetings and phone calls take place, and a bunch of other urgent tasks appear as from nothing! I was hoping to finish my talk this afternoon, but it looks like I’ll be doing it on the road…
I’ll try and blog, as I did last year, about events at the conference. This year, however, seems to be super-busy, as I’ve accepted all sorts of new conference-organizing responsibilities and am going to try and hash out a few papers with people while there.
If any of my regular readers are going to be at FiO and want to meet up to say “hello”, send me an email and we’ll see what we can do!
Speaking of OSA, this month’s issue of Optics and Photonics News has a nice biography of Robert W. Wood, who I recently declared one of the earliest investigators of invisibility physics. I’m not sure if it is an open access article or not, but it’s an interesting read if you can get to it.
