What better way to kick off 2009 than with an overview of some of the most popular scientific conferences for researchers from all over the world? The experience of attending a scientific conference is invaluable for learning how to communicate your research and for staying at the cutting edge of science. It is also a great time to network with other labs and form collaborations that will lead to faster discoveries and publications in top tier journals.
If you haven’t decided where you want to spend your travel money, below is a list of the key conferences taking place in the US. Take a look and send us your comments to include additional conferences you attend in Europe and Asia that you think are providing the latest and greatest information for your field of work.

If you are new to your field, ask your colleagues where they are going and do some research to see if you would benefit more from a smaller, intimate, specialized meeting or some of these large conferences that give a comprehensive overview of an entire field of science. Regardless of where you go, it will be an invigorating experience that should not be missed.
If you already have your meetings mapped out for this year, and they are not on this list, drop us a comment and let us know where you are going, and we’ll add them to make a more comprehensive list.
