When travel is limited
Earlier this week, we began the conversation about a new conference about women in astronomy and planetary science and several points were made about accessibility, particularly for those who are instructors, mothers, etc. with limited time available during the semester and too many conferences to attend.
I’ve happily participated in several meetings lately using WebEx as a remote conferencing tool, and I’d be happy to suggest to the organizing committee that this capability be added … but tell me, for both this meeting and the LPSC breakfast … what do YOU think would work? What technologies (WebEx, twitter, liveblogging, etc.) would help YOU participate in conferences or meetings to which, for whatever reason, you can’t travel?
