Eastercon Talks  
Tame Layman and I are both giving talks at Eastercon. Tame Layman will be talking about 'Robot Dinosaurs from Outer Space: the science behind animating ancient life' at 5.30pm on Friday and I will be talking on `How do I know my Robot is Safe?' at 1.45pm on Saturday.

I know [personal profile] inamac and lil_shepherd will be there but I'm not sure who else might be. We'd be more than happy for people to come along and say hello though!

Whew! The only panel I am left with just gives me time to get to B's talk! Ina and I will almost certainly be at both your talks.

I had a feeling you were on the MCU panel. I'll definitely be there - I'm not sure if B will or if he'll be fretting nervously somewhere.

I am not sure whether you know them, but I believe that pellegrina, muuranker, and the author of ansiblenews will all be there.

ETA: And I think that muninnhuginn will be there.

We won't, though :-(

pellegrina I know, and ansiblenews by repute if not in person. I don't think I know either muuranker or muninnhuginn.

We're expecting to see you guys at Cheltenham though - in the DinoZone!!!

Cheltenham is definitely in the diary.

Ooh, what day are you in Cheltenham? Will you have time for a nice cup of tea?
louisedennislouisedennis on April 2nd, 2015 09:31 pm (UTC)
We'll be there from the 1st through to the 8th. There will definitely be time for a cup of tea but exactly when will depend upon how the schedules work out for manning the stands. My hope is that we'll be able to engineer at least a day off but I don't know when yet.

EDIT: 1st - 8th June BTW. We're doing Cheltenham Science Festival.

Splendid! It will be lovely to see you. I'm pretty free at the moment, so I can fit in with you. Let me know ...

I must get on and book some tickets for various events.

I'll keep an eye on things - if my schedule is Oxford-biased that week I might be able to come along to something, but all is uncertain.

If the words 'lapis lazuli necklace' mean nothing to you, I don't think we met at Eastercon. Next year?

Lapis Lazuli necklace isn't ringing any bells. We're definitely hoping to be there next year though since it will be on our home turf.

Us to - just over the Pennines from us.

What day is your talk? I can only make it to Eastercon on Sunday.
louisedennislouisedennis on April 7th, 2015 08:03 am (UTC)
My talk was on the Saturday, I'm afraid. Sorry to have missed you though.
