TAM4 Part 0: Introduction

I attended The Amazing Meeting 4 (TAM4) in Las Vegas on January 26-29, 2006. This was my first TAM, and I was not sure what to expect. It turned out to be a very intellectually stimulating event, which was also very relax and fun. There were around 800 attendees, making for some great rounds of applause and some long lines at the buffet tables!

In this series of posts, I will list the speakers and their purported topics, followed by some of my observations. Most of the writing here will serve as a reminder for me, but you may find it useful as a way of getting the feel of the conference. Of course, my main reason for publishing these posts is to start conversations with folks who have something interesting to say.

The theme for this year’s conference was “Science in Politics, Politics of Science.” Many of the speakers addressed this theme directly, some touched on it and a few did not respond to it at all.
