After three interesting days at PCST-10, the Public Communication of Science and Technology conference in Malmö/Copenhagen, I went with my family for a week of swimming and general relaxation at Varberg on the west coast of Sweden. Now: two weeks back in Lund at the bookstacks, the computer keyboard, the heaps of xeroxes and printouts of pdf:s before another week of travel; we plan to go to Tisvildeleje on the north coast of Zealand. We have been there for some three summers in a row.
The PCST-10 programme (pdf) was a broad mix.
Had got a session accepted together with two colleagues: Malin Sandström, Swedish science blogger extraordinaire (besides being in the finishing stages of her PhD thesis in computational neurobiology at Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm) and Thomas Söderqvist, who’s shown during several years blogging how a department – he’s professor of the history of medicine at Copenhagen University – can benefit from an actively updated blog.
We were very happy with our session; lots of people showed up and the discussions were lively and informed after our presentations. Abstracts, comments &c for our session here>.
