First preliminary announcement- Scientific Maker event in June

We are putting together a Scientific Maker event at the American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division meeting in  San Diego June 16.  Scientific makers tend to be sort of thinly spread in regular maker events, and poster sessions just aren't suited for showing DIY science and citizen science. So this will be something between a maker table and a poster session at a traditional scientific conference. There is also a symposium for papers on the topic.

The preliminary call for participation is now up as part of their newsletter, on page 15:

Space is pretty limited so jump on it soon! Participation is free but requires registering for the meeting, which is $70 for presenters and cheaper for some other constituencies.  Instructions for applying are in the newsletter, or you can contact me via the Nonscriptum page. 
The details are still a little dynamic and subject to change, but we are looking forward to seeing who is interested.
