Wow, insanely busy this week – everything seems to happen at once. Quick notes, we’ll be manning a booth at the OCE Discovery 09 Conference next week, and it looks like it’s going to be a worthwhile conference. I’ll do my best to post a few more details later this week, but the student attendance is only $50 which isn’t bad, and the general admission is $395 which again, isn’t that bad. It’s not a solar energy conference, but a technology, research and innovation conference. The Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) are putting this on as a showcase of the sorts of collaboration and research they support. If you’re doing any sort of technology development in Ontario and you’re not talking them, you need to start. Anyway, it’s all day Monday and Tuesday, and I’m looking forward to it.
Also, we’re sorry to be missing the ASES National Solar Conference in Buffalo, NY. This is the classic conference/trade show mix and should be really good. Also, they’re offering a public segment, which is a strong plus – if the conference registration is too much, they offer access to the exhibit hall, a general session on Friday and a Public Day program on Saturday. A great deal for $10 if you’re at all interested in solar energy. I’m really kicking myself that my schedule next week just makes this impossible.
