A quick advertisement for the interested – the UK SETI community has a chance to meet over 3 sessions at the Royal Astronomical Society’s National Astronomy Meeting (RAS NAM), to be held July 1st to 5th at the University of St Andrews.
The list of talks looks very interesting (even without my contribution!). The deadline for abstracts is now April 1st, so if you’re keen to submit a talk or poster to the session, you still can.
SETI in the UK is in a transitional phase, edging toward the mainstream as astrobiology becomes more and more commonplace in UK research institutes. NAM 2013 is going to be a great opportunity for the UK SETI community to meet – there hasn’t been sessions on this scale for several years. Also, for any UK astronomers out there who have been thinking about how their research might apply to SETI, then here’s a golden chance to find out what SETI science looks like, and what you can do to be involved. If you can’t make it to the sessions, you can check out the Facebook page setinam2013 and the Twitter hashtag #setinam2013. See you there!
