News/GMOD in Boston in July?
From Scott on 2010/05/25:
Due to the short notice, I've decided not to have a GMOD meeting before BOSC/ISMB in July. I am hoping to plan an informal "GMOD lunch" sometime during BOSC or ISMB for people who are going to the meetings and would like to get together to chat.
Since the last GMOD meeting in January, I had been hoping to have a GMOD meeting around the ISMB and BOSC meetings in Boston this July. Until this week, though, I had had a difficult time finding a place where a meeting could be held for a reasonable price. However, a kind soul at The Broad has offered a meeting space that would easily accommodate a GMOD meeting for two days before BOSC (either July 6-7 or July 7-8). The only question I have is this: can people make it to a GMOD meeting with about 2 months notice? Please let me know your thoughts on this. While there would probably be a registration fee, it would be fairly low (I'm guessing in the ballpark of $50).
Scott hasn't heard back, yea or nay, from very many people so far and we need to make a decision as soon as possible. If you have any thoughts on this, please send them to Scott before 3pm Eastern US time on Monday, May 24. See the GMOD Calendar for a list of what else is going on in July.
