It is the Ergonomics Society's annual conference this week. As a registered member of the society I supposed I should be there. But it is in Cambridge, which is difficult and expensive for me to get there, and I expect most delegates are more likely to be my competitors than potential clients.
There is a session devoted to the oil and chemical industry that I would have been particularly interested in. I must try and get a look at the papers being presented.
Next year's conference is in Nottingham. I'll try and make more of an effort to attend. I might even submit a paper.
