The University of British Columbia is Celebrating CIRS and Accelerating Sustainability November 3 to 5. This should make for an interesting conference. “It will explore the ways in which we can advance debates, technologies, discoveries, and instruction that support a sustainable future, and will celebrate the opening of CIRS” (as quoted from their invite email). I just registered, see you there!
