Well, I’ve managed to secure a spot at this year’s Gordon Research Conference on Quantum Information Science being held in Big Sky, Montana (that’s just up the road about 30 miles from Yellowstone). Now I’ve just got to figure out how to pay for it. I applied for some funding from the conference, but who knows how much that will be. The conference fees (which include all meals) are well over a grand, even more if I go with a single. If I use my travel budget for next fiscal year I won’t have much left for the APS March Meeting (which is luckily in Pittsburgh which means I can drive – I’m sort of committed to that meeting for the foreseeable future due to my involvement with the GQI). So, I’m taking donations! 🙂
Update: I also meant to say that, in going to Big Sky, Montana, I can’t pass up an opportunity to fly fish on the Gallatin River. I’m currently procuring advice from my pals over at Maineflyfish.com on this.
