Hello from Indianapolis
I'm currently at the ieee e-Science 2008 conference in Indianapolis. The actual conference proper doesn't start until Wednesday with Monday and Tuesday being taken up with tutorials and workshops.
I'm here at the conference venue a little bit early to get some work done ahead of my presentation in the workshop on "Project Management and User Engagement". My aim for today, as well as giving my presentation, is to see daylight at some point as it was dark when I left the hotel this morning and the workshop room has no windows!
I've been here since Saturday evening and my impressions of Indianapolis are mainly that it's cold! It didn't get above freezing yesterday and I'm very glad I brought a case full of thick winter clothing!
