Good news, boys and girls, next week I will be heading to Los Angeles!
Back in late January, I was notified over email that my abstract for a conference hosted by the University of Southern California was accepted for inclusion in the program. Hence that means I will be back in North America again after a 6-month absence, this time to the West Coast. I suppose this post also shows how much lag time I have when I write posts and when they actually go online. I am just happy that when this post goes online, what I am talking about is still in the future.
Anyway, while Los Angeles for me isn't the most thrilling city, I am still excited to go, since I actually love the atmosphere of this conference. It will be my third time presenting in this conference, and if I were to judge my experience based on the previous two times, then I think I would have a good time here as well.
This also means that March will be travel-heavy for me. I've already scheduled a vacation earlier in the month (when this post goes online I will be in my 41st country), so things are a little hectic. Oh well, I do like traveling after all so I am not complaining.
So now I have two conference presentations this year, so far. A third might be swanky, but I also need to spend some time in my lab and conduct some new experiments so that I can have new things to report. We'll see.
