I’ve gotten over 50 hits already today on this blog concerning the Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Deigo Nov 3-7. Unfortunately, at this time I have no information on whether or not it’s happening. There is currently a Human Genetics Conference going on at the Convention Center downtown, so I would assume that the meeting is NOT cancelled. Downtown has not been affected by anything other than smoke at this point, and the fires are far away from downtown. Most evacuees were sent to Qualcomm Stadium, which is also a decent way away from downtown. As I said, the biggest concern would probably be smoke, and how long that sticks around is pretty much up to the weather at this point.
This is all just my speculation at this point – if anyone has concrete information regarding the conference, please email me at natkardos [at] gmail [dot] com. I sent an email to the Society already, but I’m guessing they are flooded with questions right now and are in the midst of figuring out what to do themselves at the moment.
