Conference Blogging!

A new blog has turned up at the Nature Scitable blog-network: ConferenceCast. This blog is managed by no other than your now-not-very-anonymous LabRat and will feature reports (mostly by students) from conferences all over the globe, covering as many different aspects of science that I can find. If you ever wanted to know what goes on inside the mysterious world of science conferences, or if you've been to many yourself and want to catch up on the new ones, that's the blog to follow.

It's not the only new thing at Nature Scitable. There's also Our Science, that explores the mysteries of everyday life, Green Science, which covers biodiversity and ethical issues, MedSci discoveries, and several others. The landing page for all of them is here, and many are written by high-school or undergraduate students so will be well worth checking out.

As I said, I'm in charge of running the ConferenceCast blog, so I am currently looking for conferences to cover! If you, or any of your colleges, are attending any conferences in the coming months and feel like having a go at blogging it, please don't hesitate to get in touch, especially if you're a student! I know conferences can often seem overwhelmingly busy at the best of times but it won't take too much longer to email me a couple of paragraphs on what went on. You can find my contact email on the ConferenceCast page (and there's a nice picture for the stalkers).

I'm going to enjoy managing this new blog, and I hope some of you will enjoy reading it!
