This just in from David Snoke:
University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Philosophy of Science is also running a conference on design themes in biology April 15-16:
If you are coming to the Annual meeting April 15-16, consider extending your stay to come a little earlier and depart a little later. The world-renowned Pittsburgh Center for Philosophy of Science is having a meeting that runs through the day on Friday and in the afternoon on Saturday. Details here. Some relevant ideas unpacked here.
Annual Meeting is in two weeks; late registration fees apply starting next week
The annual meeting is coming up soon, in less than two weeks! This year we are applying a late registration fee, as we had a boatload of late registrations last year which made it hard to plan.
Students with valid ID are still free, but students who register late or on-site will not receive registration packets.
