Here and there…

by David Ng

Don’t usually publicize these things, but I’ll be giving a few talks in the next little while that should be fun (as is tradition, I promise to insert a little Chewbacca into all of these talks). In particular, I’ll be in New York for a few days, and game to chat with folks generally. Anyway, here is the line up for the next few weeks.

May 28th: “Going Public: Into the great wide open” CTLT Institute, 1:15PM – 3:45PM, Vancouver, UBC Campus, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre – Seminar Room 2.22A/B – link (free but registration required)

June 2nd: “How Biodiversity Became a Game.” World Science Festival. 2:15 PM – 2:45 PM, New York, Brooklyn, NYU Polytechnic Institute, MetroTech Plaza. link (free public talk – the line up looks awesome)

June 3rd: “The Ultimate Science Street Fair.” World Science Festival. 10AM – 6PM, New York, Washington Square Park. There will be a PHYLO tent, so pop by to visit, and check out the game with your kids. I’ll be giving the odd biodiversity talk every now and then too. link (free)

June 12th: “The Art of Science.” UBC Pathology Arts’ Gala, Vancouver, UBC Medical Student and Alumini Centre. link. I’ll be doing a spoken word performance here, a little along the lines of something like this. (tickets required)

June 15th: “Lessons Learnt in the Fine but Unpredictable Art of Crowdsourcing” Northern Voice. 1:00PM – 2:00PM, Vancouver, W2, SFU Cinema. link (conference registration required)
